Jesus, and Shall It Ever Be 113
(FEDERAL STREET. L. M.)
Henry K. Oliver, 1832 Joseph Grigg, 1765
 


1.Jesus, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of thee?
Ashamed of thee, whom angels praise,
Whose glories shine thro' endless days ?
2.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.
3.Till then, nor is my boasting vain,
Till then I boast a Saviour slain ;
And may this my glory be,
That Christ is not ashamed of me. Amen.
