Write Thy Name Upon My Heart

“There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ… that ye should remember to retain the name written always in your hearts…”
Mosiah 5:8,12
About the Song
The recording by Allyse Smith Taylor is done in 3/4 time. (Well, mostly 3/4!) That’s because Marvin Goldstein was accompanying, and having fun with it. The original score is written in 4/4. The SSA version of this song may be sung using the accompaniment and flute obbligato from version 2. The SSATB is a bit harder to use that way since there are some dissonances that will make the parts harder to sing. The cello score is what you hear in the recording by James Loynes. It can be used with version 2 with or without the flute.

Lyrics

Write thy name upon my heart
Jesus, Savior of mankind
Teach me charity unfailing
Teach me compassion, Lord, like thine
Endow my soul with loving kindness
Make me even as thou art
Engrave thine image in my countenance
Write thy name upon my heart

When battles rage; when storms arise
Make me a messenger of peace
Teach me tolerance and meekness
And faith to bid the tempest cease
Endow my soul with loving kindness
Make me even as thou art
Engrave thine image in my countenance
Write thy name upon my heart

Grant me strength to serve thee well
Light my spirit with thy grace
‘Til all my works reflect thy goodness
‘Til all my labors sing thy praise
Endow my soul with loving kindness
Make me even as thou art
Engrave thine image in my countenance
Write thy name upon my heart

    We sang “Write Thy Name Upon My Heart” for conformation when the Bishop made his yearly visit yesterday.
    I like the words so much that I copied them from my sheet music to use as a prayer at our Education for Ministry meeting to night. I feel sometimes that people are moved by the performance but can;t remember the words, so now I have them to use regularly in my prayers. Thanks so much. cdm

    I put together the ward sacrament meeting program and this week our ward choir will be performing this song. The title so touched me that I had to find you and print it up. Thank you for all the inspiration you give to one and all. What a beautiful talent you are sharing with the world.
