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.
