And they departed from the presence of the council,
rejoicing that they were counted worthy
to suffer shame for his name.
Acts 5:41 KJV
Are you prepared to suffer in His name,
The Son of God who died on Calvary?
Would you then follow Jesus just the same
If all your kin and friends should disagree?
The Christians in Iraq are being killed,
And in Somalia are flogged and flayed,
But if believers here are slightly grilled
They hide their crosses for they’re so afraid.
No matter what the world may do to you,
Remember what it did to Christ the King.
So count as worthy what you’re going through;
It’s only temporary what they bring.
Are you prepared to suffer in His name?
Are you prepared to suffer death or shame?
