This story really blessed me today. I'll never forget this precious little girl named Cassie who came up to me one Sunday after worship time. I had led the kids at the end with the song "He Knows My Name" (Tommy Walker).

She said that she cried because the thought of God knowing her name made her feel so special.

I love the way your piece captures the children who feel lost in life. Bravo.
I love hymn histories, and this is one I had never heard. I won't ever think of the song the same way again. Well-written, and right on topic, too.
