Jesus, how could I ever be

Jesus, how could I ever be
ashamed of you, who died for me?
ashamed of you, whom angels praise,
whose glories shine through endless days?

2. Ashamed of Jesus, of my God,
who purchased me with his own blood?
of him who, to retrieve my loss,
despised the shame, endured the cross?

3. Ashamed of Jesus, that dear friend
on whom my hopes of heaven depend?
No, when I blush, be this my shame,
that I no more revere his name.

4. Ashamed of Jesus, of my Lord
by all heaven’s glorious hosts adored?
No! He my boast will ever be
in time and in eternity!

5. Till then I’ll boast of him who gave
his life my sinful soul to save!
May this alone my glory be,
that Christ is not ashamed of me!
