Representative Text

1 Be not ashamed of Jesus,
Tho’ others may fear and flee;
When thou wast poor and needy
He was not ashamed of thee.

Be not ashamed of Jesus,
Whose goodness no words can tell;
Be not ashamed, ashamed of Him
Who loveth thy soul so well.

2 Be not ashamed of Jesus,
Thy Saviour and truest Friend;
He will not chide nor fail thee,—
On Him you can always depend. [Refrain]

3 Be not ashamed of Jesus,
The King who at last shall reign;
He, for thy soul’s salvation,
Hast suffered the world’s disdain. [Refrain]
