Ashamed of Jesus

Hi die_to_live,

I think these are what you're looking for:

"Jesus! And Shall It Ever Be"
by Joseph Grigg, c. 1722-1768

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?

2. Ashamed of Jesus? Sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star.
He sheds the beams of light divine
O'er this benighted soul of mine.

3. Ashamed of Jesus? Just as soon
Let midnight be ashamed of noon.
'Tis midnight with my soul till He,
Bright Morning Star, bids darkness flee.

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!

God bless!

Gospel Hymns includes a seventh verse:

7 His institutions would I prize,
Take up my cross and shame despise:
Dare to defend His noble cause,
And yield obedience to His laws.

Joseph Grigg ~1720-68
and Benjamin Francis 1734-99 ... s.pdf?dl=0
