Barney E. Warren (1867–1951)


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.
