The Untitled Hymn

It was requested that I post the lyrics to the song Nathan sang at my Dad's funeral. (Video of his singing can be found below.) This is one of those songs I wish I had written; it is absolutely gorgeous. Chris Rice is one of our family's favorite writers and singers.


The Untitled Hymn
(Lyrics/Music by Chris Rice)

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus, Come to Jesus, Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus, Sing to Jesus, Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we fall...so
Fall on Jesus, Fall on Jesus, Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus, Cry to Jesus, Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus, Dance for Jesus, Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus, Fly to Jesus, Fly to Jesus and live!

Hi Becky-

I can't seem to find the link to the video of Nathan singing @ Grandpa's funeral.

Hope you all are doing okay---is okay as you can be.
