#260: Is My Name Written There?

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Lord, I care not for riches, neither silver nor gold –

I would bake sure of heaven, I would enter the fold.

In the book of Thy kingdom with its pages so fair,

Tell me, Jesus, my Savior, is my name written there?

REFRAIN (vs. 1+2)

Is my name written there On the page white and fair?

In the book of Thy kingdom, Is my name written there?


Lord, my sins they are many, like the sands of the sea,

But Thy blood, O my Savior, is sufficient for me;

For Thy promise is written in the bright letters that glow,

“Tho your sins be as scarlet, I will make them like snow.”



O that beautiful city with its mansions of light,

With its glorified beings in pure garments of white;

Where no evil thing cometh to despoil what is fair,

Where the angels are watching – yes my name’s written there.

REFRAIN (vs 3)

Yes, my name’s written there On the page white and fair;

In the book of Thy kingdom, yes, my name’s written there.
