Jesus, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of thee?
Ashamed of thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine thro' endless days ?
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.
Till then, nor is my boasting vain,
Till then I boast a Saviour slain ;
And may this my glory be,
