GOD’S HALL OF FAME

YOUR NAME MAY NOT APPEAR DOWN HERE
IN THIS WORLD’S HALL OF FAME,
IN FACT YOU MAY BE SO UNKNOWN
THAT NO ONE KNOWS YOUR NAME,

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 —— YES—— BY FAR,
THEN ALL THE HALLS
OF FAME DOWN HERE
AND EVERY MAN MADE STAR.

THE CROWDS ON EARTH, THEY SOON FORGET,
THE HEROES OF THE PAST,
THEY CHEER LIKE MAD UNTIL YOU FALL.
AND THAT’S HOW LONG YOU LAST.
BUT GOD —– HE NEVER DOES FORGET,
AND IN HIS “HALL OF FAME”
BY JUST BELIEVING IN 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 EVERY FAMOUS NAME ON EARTH.
OR GLORY THAT THEY SHARE,
I’D RATHER BE AN UNKNOWN HERE,
AND HAVE MY NAME UP THERE.
