1 They who confess the Savior here,
Must count upon the worldling’s sneer;
Must reckon on his malice, too,
Nor fear to stand among the few.
2 How many, thro’ the fear of shame,
Refuse to own the Savior’s name!
Lest fools the question should renew,
And cry, Are ye deceivèd, too?
3 The fear of man thus brings a snare,
For few his frown and scorn can bear,
But they should think what Jesus says,
Them who confess Me I’ll confess.
4 Ah Lord! with truth we all may tell,
That we have loved the world too well;
O make us valiant in Thy cause!
And careless of the world’s applause.
5 While we despise the earthly scorn,
Let all our works Thy truth adorn!
And when Thy glorious day we see,
O let us be confessed of Thee!
