03. He Knows My Name

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli



 

Spent today in a conversation / In the mirror face to face with / Somebody less than perfect / I wouldnít choose me first if / I was lookingfor a champion / In fact Iíd understand if / You picked
everyone before me / But thatís just not my story // True to who You are /You saw my heart / And made something out of nothing, so // CHORUS: I donít need my name in lights / Iím famous in my Fatherís eyes / Make no mistake / He knows my name / Iím not living for applause / Iím already so adored / Itís all His stage / He knows my name / He knows my name // Iím not meant to just stay quiet / Iím meant to be a lion / Iíll roar beyond a song / With every moment that Iíve got // True to who You are / You saw my heart / And made something out of nothing // CHORUS // He calls me chosen / Free, forgiven / Wanted, child of the King / His forever / Held and treasured / I am loved // I donít need my name in lights / Iím famous in my Fatherís eyes // CHORUS

(Francesca Battistelli / Mia Fieldes / Seth Mosley)

Behind the Song:
ďBut now thus says the LordÖI have called you by name, you are mine.Ē - Isaiah 43:1

I wrote ďHe Knows My NameĒ with Seth Mosley and Mia Fieldes. I love this song. To me, itís an anthem. How many of us feel defined by what people say about us? But God calls us by name. His words for us are: chosen, free, forgiven, beautiful, wanted, loved. THAT is the only voice we should be listening to. - Francesca Battistelli
