My name is in the Book of Life,
O bless the name of Jesus;
I rise above all doubt and strife,
And read my title clear.


I know, I know my name is there (is there);
I know, I know, my name is written there.

My name once stood with sinners, lost,
And bore a painful record;
But by His blood the Savior crossed,
And placed it on His roll.


Yet inward trouble often cast
A shadow o’er my title;
But now with full salvation blest,
Praise God! it’s ever clear.


While others climb thro’ worldly strife,
To carve a name of honor,
High up in Heaven’s Book of Life,
My name is written there.
