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.
When Jesus comes in burning flame
To recompense the just,

In which the Saints can trust.
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.
He then will give us a new name,
With robes of righteousness,
And, in the New Jerusalem,
