Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
Iím not ashamed to own my Lord
Or to defend His cause;
Maintain the honor of His word,
The glory of His cross.

Iím not ashamíd to own my LORD,, Stanza 1
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.

Iím not ashamíd to own my LORD,, Stanza 2
