I am Not Ashamed ~

Lord, I am not ashamed,
  of the hope that lives in me
  I wear my faith openly
  for all the world to see.
You asked me to be the light,
  to shine Your Word upon my path
 so, I share Your truth knowing,
  at me they'll scorn and laugh.
I am not intimidated,
  by the words and thoughts of man
 instead, I rejoice in the knowledge
  You will finish what You began.
You asked me to be the salt,
  to spread Your favor on the earth
 so, I tell the story on my way
  of their sin, Your life, new birth.
I am not afraid,
  or concerned what man may do
 for I know that I am Yours
  and they can't take me from You.
You asked me to follow You,
  in my every act and deed
  I do so willingly because I know
  You will help me as I need.
I am not beaten,
  although man may think he's won
 for I've seen the Crown of victory
  upon my Lord, the Christ, Your Son.
You asked me to be faithful,
  my trust in You remains
  I know You will walk with me
  on the narrowest of these plains.
Lord, I am not ashamed,
  despite how man wants me to feel
 the Good News is my life
  and Your love I can't conceal!
Mark 8:38
 King James Version
“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me
 and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation;
 of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,
 when he cometh in the glory of his Father
 with the holy angels.”
