We’re Not Ashamed to Own Our Lord


    We’re Not Ashamed to Own Our Lord


    1. We’re not ashamed to own our Lord

    And worship him on earth.

    We love to learn his holy word

    And know what souls are worth.

    2. When Jesus comes in burning flame

    To recompense the just,

    The world will know the only name

    In which the Saints can trust.

    3. When he comes down from heav’n to earth

    With all his holy band,

    Before creation’s second birth,

    We hope with him to stand.

    4. He then will give us a new name,

    With robes of righteousness,

    And, in the New Jerusalem,

    Eternal happiness.
