.........
Lord, I care not for riches, neither silver nor gold;
I would make sure of Heaven, I would enter the fold.
In the book of Thy kingdom, with its pages so fair,
Tell me, Jesus, my Savior, is my name written there?

Refrain

Is my name written there,
On the page white and fair?
In the book of Thy kingdom,
Is my name written there?
