Representative Text

1 In thy book, where glory bright
Shines with never-fading light,
Where thy saved thou wilt record,
Write my name, my name, O Lord.

Write my name in the book of life,
Lamb of God, write it there;
Where thy saved thou wilt record
Write my name, my name, O Lord.

2 In the book, whose pages tell
Who have tried to serve thee well,
O’er my name let mercy trace
Child of God, redeemed by grace. [Refrain]

3 In the book, where thou dost keep
Record still of years that sleep,
Let my name be written down,
Heir to life’s immortal crown. [Refrain]

4 O my Saviour, thou canst show
What I long so much to know:
Let my faith behold and see
That my life is hid with thee. [Refrain]
