Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).
Hymn 486 from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.
I’m not ashamed to own my Lord,
Or to defend His cause;
Maintain the honour of His Word,
The glory of His cross.
Jesus, my God, I know His name;
His name is all my trust;
Nor will He put my soul to shame,
Nor let my hope be lost.
Firm as His throne His promise stands;
And He can well secure
What I’ve committed to His hands
Till the decisive hour.
Then will He own my worthless name
Before His Father’s face;
And in the new Jerusalem
Appoint my soul a place.
