Representative Text

1 We shall have a new name in that land,
In that land, that sunny, sunny land,
When we meet the bright angelic band,
In that sunny land.
A new name, a new name we’ll receive up there;
A new name, a new name, all who enter there.

Refrain:
We shall have a new name in that land,
In that land, that sunny, sunny land,
When we meet the bright angelic band,
In that sunny land.

2 We’ll receive it in a pure, white stone,
And no one will know the name therein;
Only unto him who hath ‘tis known,
When we’re free from sin.
A white stone, a white stone we’ll receive up there;
A white stone, a white stone, all who enter there. [Refrain]

3 Don’t you wonder what that name will be,
Sweeter far that aught on earth can be,
We will be quite satisfied when we
Shall that new name know.
I wonder, I wonder what that name will be,
I wonder, I wonder, what he’ll give to me. [Refrain]

H.," (1) "The love that Jesus had for me" (Love of Jesus); (2) "We shall have a new name in that land" (The New Name). The music in Sankey to these hymns is also by the same person. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
