Matthew West, “Hello, My Name Is”

matthew-west-hello-my-name-is

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Matthew West has released Hello My Name Is as the second single off Into the Light, his Grammy-nominated 2012 release. Carrier single Forgiveness topped Radio and Records’ Christian AC chart, but stopped short of number one on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart.

Matthew always makes great carrier singles, and Forgiveness was clearly a topnotch release, but I was a little underwhelmed by it. I feel very – VERY – differently about Hello My Name Is. I instantly loved Hello My Name Is the minute I heard it. It’s inspirational, it’s unique, and it’s just encouragement in a box. Christians everywhere will definitely be able to relate to Hello My Name Is, so I hope Christian AC radio programmers will be open to this amazing song.

HELLO MY NAME IS Lyrics
Matthew West

Hello, my name is regret
I’m pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
I’m the whisper inside
That won’t let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
I’ll drag you right back down again
‘Til you’ve lost all belief

These are the voices, these are the lies
And I have believed them, for the very last time

Hello, my name is ‘Child of the one true King’
I’ve been saved
I’ve been changed
And I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is ‘Child of the one true King’

I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it’s true
Just take a look at my life
What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King

Hello, my name is ‘Child of the one true King’
I’ve been saved
I’ve been changed
And I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is ‘Child of the one true King’
