Representative Text

1 I'm not ashamed of Jesus,
Nor of his blessed Word;
The tidings of salvation,
My willing heart has heard.

Ashamed, ashamed of Jesus!
Ashamed to make him known!
Oh, no! But let me glory in Jesus Christ alone.

2 I'm not ashamed of Jesus,
His name is Lord and King;
But lowly ones may love him,
And join his praise to sing. [Chorus]

3 His messages of pardon,
Of truth and love and grace,
I long to bear to others,
That they may see his face. [Chorus]

4 The bearer of good tidings
Should never be ashamed;
Let all rejoice in Jesus,
Wherever he is named. [Chorus]
