Chris Rice’s Untitled Hymn has been on my mind a lot lately. It’s such a simple song, but I cannot sing it without getting choked up.
By the way, family, any of the songs I’ve posted would be good to use at my funeral someday… when I fly to Jesus.
Weak and wounded sinner,
Lost and left to die,
Raise your head for love is passing by.
Come to Jesus and live.
Now your burden’s lifted
And carried far away,
And precious blood has washed away the stain,
Sing to Jesus and live.
Like a newborn baby,
Don’t be afraid to crawl,
And remember when you walk sometimes we fall.
So fall on Jesus and live.
Sometime the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain,
So if your sky is dark and pours the sky like rain,
Then cry to Jesus and live.
Oh, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night,
And when you can’t contain your joy inside,
Then dance for Jesus and live.
And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world good-bye,
Then go in peace and laugh on glory’s side,
And fly to Jesus and live.
