Dance with Jesus

A few years ago, a song with a strange name was played often on Christian Radio. It immediately became my favorite. It is called "Untitled Hymn" (Come to Jesus) sung by Chris Rice.

The progression of each verse builds with each key word....Come, Sing, Fall, Cry, Dance and culminating with Fly to Jesus. From the moment I heard it, I called it "Matthew's Song" and still cry every time I listen to it.

Matthew died four days ago and is finally free of his frail, deformed body. No more pain and suffering. I loved him so much.

As I prepared flowers for his funeral, I listened to the words once again and I cried many tears of sadness because he will be missed, and tears of joy because I imagine him running, flying and dancing with Jesus.

He will be waiting to welcome me and be able to run, dance and finally speak and say,"Hi Grammie".
