From the recording Electric Hillbilly


Written by: Mark Brine
He wrote our names upon His handsAs He promised us so long agoThat he would never ever forget usWherever that He may goIndelibly, He had them placed thereLike initials carved in a treeAs a sign of love, ever-endearingBefore we even ever came to beYes, He knew each one of usBefore the dawning of timeThat’s what He wrote in His wordAnd in an act of total self denialHe gave Himself that we might be assured
Chorus:In a promise of old as the words they were toldThat He’d never forget or leave us out in the cold no-
He wrote our names upon His handsEmbedded right deep in His fleshWith a show of love completely unequalledNot to mention it’s selflessnessYes, to right the wrong of one man’s crimeThat all thru Him might not failYes, He wrote our names upon His hands With a pair of rusty ole nails
