He Knows My Name

Francesca Battistelli

“But now thus says the Lord…I have called you by name, you are mine.” – Isaiah 43:1

 

Spent today in a conversation

In the mirror face to face with

Somebody less than perfect

I wouldn’t choose me first if

I was looking for a champion

In fact I’d understand if

You picked everyone before me

But that’s just not my story

 

True to who You are

You saw my heart

And made something out of nothing, so

 

CHORUS

I don’t need my name in lights

I’m famous in my Father’s eyes

Make no mistake

He knows my name

I’m not living for applause

I’m already so adored

It’s all His stage

He knows my name

He knows my name

 

I’m not meant to just stay quiet

I’m meant to be a lion

I’ll roar beyond a song

With every moment that I’ve got

 

True to who You are

You saw my heart

And made something out of nothing

 

CHORUS

 

He calls me chosen

Free, forgiven

Wanted, child of the King

His forever

Held and treasured

I am loved

 

I don’t need my name in lights

I’m famous in my Father’s eyes

 

CHORUS

One story about "He Knows My Name"

  • Susan says:

    This was a fantastic presentation of testimony and song lyrics that flowed throughout the song. This was very moving to me as my story is similar to some of theirs. Jesus Christ is ever present in my life with his healing I am who I am.
