    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.
