This Thought Is Dearer Far To Me


This thought is dearer far to me
Than worldly wealth or fame–
However humble I may be,
He knows me by my name!

Refrain:
He knows me by my name,
He knows me by my name!
That Friend divine is truly mine,–
He knows me by my name!

When first I heard His blessed voice,
Sin filled my heart with shame;
But now, forgiven, i rejoice–
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]

Tho’ trails daily I may meet,
All these my Lord o’ercome;
He leads the way with wounded feet–
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]

Tho’ I am weak, my Savior knows
The frailty of my frame;
His strength o’ercometh all my foes,–
He knows me by my name! [Refrain]
