You Know My Name (by Tasha Cobb)
You know my name, And oh, how You comfort me, And oh, how You counsel me, Yet it still amazes me, That I am Your friend
You know my name, And oh, how You walk with me, Oh, how You talk with me, Oh, how You tell me, That I am Your own
No fire can burn me, No battle can turn me, No mountain can stop me, ‘Cause You hold my hand, Now I’m walking in Your victory, ‘Cause Your power is within me, No giant can defeat me, ‘Cause You hold my hand
