Representative Text

1 This thought is dearer far to me
Than worldly wealth or fame--
However humble I may be,
He knows me by my name!

Refrain:
He knows me by my name,
He knows me by my name!
That Friend divine is truly mine,--
He knows me by my name!

2 When first I heard His blessed voice,
Sin filled my heart with shame;
But now, forgiven, i rejoice--
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]

3 Tho' trails daily I may meet,
All these my Lord o'ercome;
He leads the way with wounded feet--
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]

4 Tho' I am weak, my Savior knows
The frailty of my frame;
His strength o'ercometh all my foes,--
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]
