He that hath knowledge spareth his words;
and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

Ashamed of Jesus
Jesus, and shall it ever be a mortal man ashamed of Thee? Ashamed of Thee, whom angels praise, Whose glories shine thro’ endless days.
Ashamed of Jesus! sooner far let evening blush to own a star; He sheds the beams of light divine o’er this benighted soul of mine.
Ashamed of Jesus! that dear Friend, on whom my hopes of heav’n depend! No! when I blush, be this my shame, that I no more revere His name.
Ashamed of Jesus! yes, I may, when I’ve no guilt to wash away; No tear to wipe, no good to crave, no fears to quell, no soul to save.
Chorus: Ashamed of Jesus, I never, I never will be; For Jesus, my Saviour, is not ashamed of me.
