1 Asham'd of Jesus! that dear friend
On whom my hopes of heav'n depend,
No! when I blush--be this my shame,
That I no more revere his name.
2 Asham'd of Jesus! yes I may,
When I've no guilt to wash away;
No tear to wipe, no good to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
3 'Till then--nor is my boasting vain--
'Till then, I boast a Savior slain!
And O, may this my glory be,
That Christ is not asham'd of me.
4 (His institutions would I prize,
Take up my cross---the shame despise,
Dare to defend his noble cause,
And yield obedience to his laws.)
