the comfort that she warms them with
their music swells
with all their yearning
they are ashamed to sing for him
Who has built these shelves
that our spirits knock inside
and wait for their release
In the onrush of the tide
of the lord's great seas
that will boil when he returns
To pluck us off the face of this sad and dirty world"
So... it's goofy.
Yes.... I know that. But it reminds me of how much I like spirituals. dlbags sent me a very short Jeff Tweedy song tonight that much in the same vein.
I couldn't be said to "believe" in "jesus" but I really do love songs about him.
Well, *good* songs.
