Hymn: TLH 346, st. 1,5,6 :
Jesus! and Shall it ever Be
1. Jesus! and shall it ever be
A mortal man ashamed of Thee?
Ashamed of Thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine through endless days?
5. Ashamed of Jesus? Yes, I may
When I’ve no guilt to wash away,
No tear to wipe, no joy to crave,
No fears to quell, no soul to save.
6. Till then–nor is the boasting vain–
Till then I boast a Savior slain.
And oh, may this my portion be,
That Christ is not ashamed of me!
