1Ashamed of Thee? O dearest Lord,
I marvel how such wrong can be:
And yet how oft in deed and word
Have I been found ashamed of Thee!
2Ashamed of Thee, my King, my God,
Who soughtest me with wondrous love,
Whose feet the way of sorrows trod
To bring me to Thy Home above?
3Ashamed of Thee!– Of that blest Name
Which speaks of mercy full and free?
Nay, Lord, I would my only shame
Might be, to be ashamed of Thee.
4Ashamed of Thee, Whose love divine
Was not ashamed of our lost race,
But even this cold heart of mine
Dost make Thy Home and dwelling-place?
5Ashamed of Thee? O Lord, I pray
This cruel wrong no more may be:
And in Thy last great Advent-day
Oh be not Thou ashamed of me! Amen.
Romans1:16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
