I'm Not Ashamed to Own My Lord (PISGAH) 

Here's an old song recorded with my family. We like to take it in a quasi-bluegrass vein, but it would be a great congregational song too. Enjoy!

 

1 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.
