The time is coming and already here
When calling Christ your Lord brings prejudice:
Some places in the world your life’s to fear;
The civilized themselves will taunt and hiss.
You used to care how many friends you had,
But now there’s only One you call your Friend.
To be unpopular was once thought bad,
Now Christ’s the only one you can depend.
Acknowledge Jesus, don’t be shy to tell,
There’s some within that crowd to hear your voice.
The Spirit will convict them free from hell
And cause the angels then to so rejoice!
Confess the name of Christ both far and wide.
There’s nothing now to fear; He’s at your side.
Whosoever shall confess me before men,
him shall the Son of man also confess
before the angels of God.
Luke 12:8 KJV
