The Glory of the Cross 507b

Tune: W. C. Givens, 1908; Arranged by Syble (Wootten) Adams, 2010
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
I'm not ashamed to own my Lord,
Or to defend His cause;
Maintain the honor of His word,
The glory of His cross.

Jesus, my God, I know His name,
His name is all my trust;
Nor will He put my soul to shame,
Nor let my hope be lost.

There will He own my worthless name,
Before His Father's face,
And in the New Jerusalem,
Appoint my soul a place.
Given's song was written January 26, 1908.
