Words by Isaac WattsWilliam Gardiner, 1812Key signature: G major (1 sharp)Meter: 18.104.22.168(C.M.)Public Domain1. I’m not ashamed to own my Lord, Or to defend His cause, Maintain the honor of His Word, The glory of His cross.2. 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.3. Firm as His throne His promise stands, And He can well secure What I’ve committed to His hands ’Til the decisive hour.4. Then will He own my worthless name Before His Father’s face And in the new Jerusalem Appoint my soul a place.
