Hymn: TLH 346, st. 4-6 :
Jesus! and Shall it ever Be
4. Ashamed of Jesus, that dear Friend
On whom my hopes of heaven depend?
No; when I blush, be this my shame,
That I no more revere His name.
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!
