Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. 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.
2. When Jesus comes as flaming flame,
For to reward the just,
The world will know the only name,
In which the saints can trust.
3. When he comes down in heaven on earth,
With all his holy band,
Before creation's second birth;
We hope with him to stand.
4. Then will he give us a new name,
With robes of righteousness,
And in the New Jerusalem,
