Iím Not Ashamed of Jesus (Corinth) 32t

Tune: John Massengale, 1844
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Joseph Grigg, 1765
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Jesus and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of Thee?
Ashamed of Thee whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine thru endless day.

Ashamed of Jesus, sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star.
He sheds the beams of light divine
Oíer this benighted soul of mine.

Ashamed of Jesus, just as soon
Let midnight be ashamed of noon;
íTis midnight with my soul ítill He,
Bright morning star, bids darkness flee.

Ashamed of Jesus my dear Friend
On whom my hopes for life depend!
No, when I blush, be this my shame,
That I no more adore His name.
