Your name may not appear down here
In the world’s Hall of Fame,
In fact you may be so unknown
That no one knows your name;
The Oscar’s and the praise of men
May never come your way,
But don’t forget God has rewards
That He’ll hand out someday.
This Hall of Fame is only good
As long as time shall be;
But keep in mind, God’s Hall of Fame
Is for eternity;
To have your name inscribed up there
Is greater more by far
Than all the fame and all the praise
Of every man made-star.
This crowd on earth they soon forget
The heroes of the past,
They’ll cheer like mad until you fall
And that’s how long you last!
Not God, He never does forget,
And in His Hall of Fame,
By just believing on His Son,
Inscribed, you’ll find your name.
I tell you, friend, I wouldn’t trade
My name, however small,
That’s written there beyond the stars
In that celestial Hall,
For all the famous names on earth,
Or glory that they share;
I’d rather be an unknown here,
And have my name up there.
