Written by Matt Rankin
I believe that sin was defeated
When I knelt down to pray.
I believe that death lost the battle
When the stone was rolled away.
Though Satan still plots against me
He has no power against me today.
For my future has been determined
By an old rugged cross
And Jesus knows my name
I’m a child of the King
An heir to the throne.
That is why I sing
For my sin is all gone.
In this life I’ve never
Had riches or fame
But the God of all heaven
knows my name
Yes, Jesus knows my name.
My name was written down
When I gave my heart to him.
It was written in the lamb’s book of life
And I’m no longer bound by sin.
When I met the savior
He became my dearest friend.
Now I’m going to live with him in glory
In that city that has no end.
