#260: Is My Name Written There?

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

1

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?

2

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.”

REFRAIN

3

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.
