Come to Jesus

A few minutes ago, I sat on the verge of tears as a number of circumstances came together to make me sad. As often is my habit, I sat down at the piano to play and sing through my emotions. I opened one of my songbooks to a random page and found solace there.

Come to Jesus
Chris Rice

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head for Love is passin' by

Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precous blood has washed away the stain.

So sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
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
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

The cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cru 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 goobye
Then go in peace and laugh on Glory's side

And fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live

No matter my circumstance. No matter the emotion. No matter the burden. No matter who does or does not walk with me. I can ALWAYS come to Jesus. I can always fall in His arms and rest in His grace. What a wonderful and amazing God! He is beyond my comprehension and I become more and more thankful for His provision, but more so His presence, with every passing day.
