A New Name in Glory
Words and Music by C. Austin Miles

Revelation 2:17
"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone,
and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it."

          I was once a sinner, but I came
          Pardon to receive from my Lord:
          This was freely given, and I found
          That He always kept His word.

            Chorus
            There's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            And the white robed angels sing the story,
            "A sinner has come home."
            For there's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            With my sins forgiven I am bound for heaven,
            Never more to roam.

          I was humbly kneeling at the cross,
          Fearing naught by God's angry frown;
          When the heavens opened and I saw
          That my name was written down.

            Chorus
            There's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            And the white robed angels sing the story,
            "A sinner has come home."
            For there's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            With my sins forgiven I am bound for heaven,
            Never more to roam.

          In the Book 'tis written, "Saved by Grace,"
          O the joy that came to my soul!
          Now I am forgiven, and I know
          By the blood I am made whole.

            Chorus
            There's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            And the white robed angels sing the story,
            "A sinner has come home."
            For there's a new name written down in glory,
            And it's mine, O yes, it's mine!
            With my sins forgiven I am bound for heaven,
            Never more to roam.
