Francesca Battistelli - He Knows My Name (Official Video)





(Nashville, TN) October 29, 2014 - Francesca Battistelli, in partnership with Mercy Ministries, released her latest music video, "He Knows My Name," which can be viewed here.

The 12-minute long-form music video wraps the stories of four Mercy Ministries Graduates around the inspiration found in Battistelli's "He Knows My Name." From drug addiction to an unplanned pregnancy to abuse and suicide attempts, Leslie (24), Alma (31), Shannon (20) and Taylor (19) recount the tragedies and circumstances that nearly robbed them of their young lives and how their experience with Mercy Ministries helped restore them physically, emotionally and spiritually.

 "He Knows My Name" resonates with that same awareness of social pressures and the need for one's identity to be found in Christ. The video releases on the heels of a rising trend of mental illness in America. On October 10, USA Today ran a special report on the growing rate of suicide within America, stating that nearly 40,000 Americans lose their lives each year to suicide, making it the nation's 10th leading cause of death and second-leading killer for young people ages 15-34.*

Mercy Ministries fills a counter-cultural gap for some of these potential victims by providing its services free of charge. The message within Francesca's music, particularly within "He Knows My Name," bolsters their mission. Nancy Alcorn, founder and President of Mercy Ministries states: "We are so thankful for the partnership we have with Francesca Battistelli and Word Entertainment. I am blown away by the 'He Knows My Name' video and so are all the staff at Mercy! This video captures the essence of Mercy Ministries and shares our graduates' stories in a beautiful and powerful way. I pray God will touch the hearts of everyone who sees this video, and may it be masses of people globally!"

"He Knows My Name"

Spent today in a conversation
In the mirror face to face with
somebody less than perfect
I wouldn't choose me first if
I was looking for a champion
In fact I'd understand if
You picked everyone before me
But that's just not my story
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing

I don't need my name in lights
I'm famous in my Father's eyes
Make no mistake
He knows my name
I'm not living for applause
I'm already so adored
It's all His stage
He knows my name oh, oh,
He knows my name oh, oh

I'm not meant to just stay quiet
I'm meant to be a lion
I'll roar beyond a song
With every moment that I've got
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing

He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,
His forever, held in treasure...
I am loved

I don't need my name in lights...
I'm famous in my Father's eyes...

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
