I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands

I have a Father
He calls me His own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And He hears me when I call

    This song is so captivating tat I experience goose pimples all over my body anytime I sing it. I pray for the composer to make heaven at all cost because this song is a blessing.

    I simply luv this song: isn't it soothing to know that "He knows my name" & He knows yours too. Sing along...

    I can almost hear my one year old daughter singing this second verse to me and it brings tears to my eyes. One can only imagine the love that God has for us.

    Wonderful song, reassuring, great testimony of the powerful God in whom i have believed. This song came as balm to my soul, an answer to so many questions i am asking myself right now.
    Indeed He knows my name, He knows me, and that what is more important!

    Wow wow and wow! indeed it is so amazing that GOD of all the universe holy and faithful, knows all of us by name and more-so me as an individual, talk of wanting to stand or be in the realm of a well known celeb! God is and i can safely brag about him knowing me. YOU TOO CAN HEY! indeed what a wonderful privilege it is
