Your Name

At school I learned to make my mark

I learned to write my name

Our name is special intimate

Nothing sounds quite the same

To hear it spoken tenderly

To see it written down

Here I am and here’s my place

And this is my home town


A day will come eventually

They will write my name in stone

On a cold memorial

A grave with my headstone

And some will come and stay a while

And fondly think of me

And maybe leave a flower

For the one who used to be


But faith now tells me something else

A brilliant line I hear

Rejoice your name is written in heaven

There is no need to fear

No need to frown in misery

To look so sad on earth

Your name is written in heaven

The Lord gives us new birth
