Nichole Nordeman - Name Lyrics

You woke up one day in a bad way,
With a dark heart in a small cave,
And decided to hide
For the long bitter night.
But one day someone loved you,
Let the light in, made the old new,
From some water and mud wrote you new name in blood,
But now something about it, just doesn't seem real,
Sometimes that's how it feels.

You are still a promise, the heartbeat of God.
You may have forgotten, but He has not.
You are not your ashes, you are a flame.
Do not ask the shadows, the light of the world knows,
Knows your name.

There was one day, you were certain
That He called you, cause you heard him.
And the clouds disappeared,
Everything crystal clear.
But then one day, it was not so,
Other voices you did not know
From the fray and the fringe, they were all weighing in.
And now you can't remember who has your heart.
Well here's a start.

You are still a promise, the heartbeat of God.
You may have forgotten, but He has not.
You are not your ashes, you are a flame.
Do not ask the shadows, the light of the world knows...

You're a friend of God, daughter, son
Blameless and forgiven one.
You're a slave no more, finally free
Saints and heirs, now redeemed
Your beautiful and broken heart,
Is safe and sound in His arms.
You are chosen you are His,
So remember this

You are still a promise,
You may have forgotten.

You are not your ashes, you are a flame,
Do not ask the shadows, the light of the world knows,
Knows your name
He knows your name
You are not your ashes, you are a flame,
Do not ask the shadows, the light of the world knows,
Knows your name

    Great, honest, uplifting song! Great message! We all have times in our walk of faith when we feel unsteady and have doubts. We need to be reminded of God's everlasting and unfailing love!

    My wife find this Christian singer so uplifting and encourages, especially for women. We need to remember that we have the DNA of Christ.
    Many are called but few are chosen.

  17. Selah child of God

    I LOVE her music and have listened to her for YEARS!!! I am concerned about her one eye covered (symbolism) and the triangles all through this video??? IDK what to think, I am gonna pray about this and her IF she is selling out!!!! I pray not she has inspired me with her music so long!!!! Like MY redeemer lives etc, it was all praising Jesus, it seems that her latest music has moved toward a more secular (worldly) view...OH PLEASE let me be wrong, either way...Nicole, I pray for you right now that if you are temped in anyway or even led by manipulation by the labels that GOD over all will open you to the truth of how these music industry moguls are so cunning, Lord send angels of protection around her and keep her unto your self, Lord God you KNOW her and her heart, I do not so Lord if she is being decieved remove it from her NOW in JESUS name, amen
