Verse 1
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,
Nevermore to roam.

Verse 2
I was humbly kneeling at the Cross,
Fearing naught but 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,
Nevermore to roam.

Verse 3
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,
Nevermore to roam.
