Verse 1
He counts the stars one and all
He knows how much sand is on the shores
He sees every sparrow that falls
He made the mountains and the seas
He's in control of everything
Of all creatures great and small

And He knows my name
Every step that I take
Every move that I make
Every tear that I cry
He knows my name
When I'm overwhelmed by the pain
And can't see the light of day
I know I'll be just fine
'Cause He knows my name

Verse 2
I don't know what tomorrow may bring
I can't tell you what's in store
I don't know a lot of things
I don't have all the answers
To the questions of life
But I know in Whom I have believed


He knew who I was when He carried my cross
He knew that I would fail Him but He took the loss


Every step that I take
Every move that I make
Every tear that I cry

    There are times when you go through situations where everything around you seems to be going wrong... At times like that, i find comfort in this song as it gives me the assurance that nomatter what, he is there. Nomatter how dark the cloud may be at that moment, he sees all situations i go through and he will intervene coz he is watching over me.

    The meaning to the song "he knows my name" is that no matter how much you know and no matter how much you weep and cry is that he knows everything even your name and he always will
