Representative Text

1 In the Lamb's book of life, that is kept in heaven,
Are written the names of those forgiven;
Is my name written there?

Refrain:
Is my name written there?
Is my name written there?
In the Lamb's book of life,
Is my name written there?

2 All the good that I do is there recorded,
And in heaven by grace I'll be rewarded:
Is my name written there? [Refrain]

3 Tho' my life may be fraught with afflictions fearful,
I can bear with it all, and my heart be cheerful,
If my name's written there. [Refrain]
