1 Shall I be ashamed of my Savior and King,
Who left His bright glory, salvation to bring?
Who was cruelly crucified, wounded, and maimed—
Of such a great Savior shall I be ashamed?
No, no! I’ll not be ashamed;
No, no! I’ll not be ashamed.
2 Shall I be ashamed of His wonderful word?
Or blush when the praises of Jesus are heard?
Shall the laugh of the skeptic my lips tightly seal,
Lest I my profession of Christ should reveal? [Refrain]
3 Shall I be ashamed of the people of God
Who walk in the pathway that Jesus has trod?
Shall I shrink from opposing the forces of sin,
And grieve from my bosom the Spirit within? [Refrain]
4 I’ll not be ashamed of my dear loving Lord,
Ashamed of His people, His cause, or His word;
I’ll be faithful in Jesus, His banner I’ll bear,
The joy of His kingdom forever to share. [Refrain]
