Burl Ives recorded this song with just about every gospel quartet around.

It was written based on the scripture verse:  Revelation 2:17

 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”’

LYRICS:  A New Name in Glory 
1. I was once a sinner, but I came 
Pardon to receive from my Lord: 
This was freely given, and I found 
That He always kept His word.
There's a new name written down in glory, 
And it's mine, O yes, it's mine! 
And the white robed angels sing the story, 
"A sinner has come home" 
For there's a new name written down in glory, 
And it's mine, O yes, it's mine! 
With my sins forgiven I am bound for Heaven, 
Never more to roam.
2. I was humbly kneeling at the cross, 
Fearing naught but God's angry frown; 
When the heavens opened and I saw 
That my name was written down.
3. In the Book 'tis written, "Saved by Grace," 
O the joy that came to my soul! 
Now I am forgiven, and I know 
By the blood I am made whole.
