Under Bridges

I'm back from Council - I had a great time :)

Here's a song that talks about some of the stuff I'm wrestling with right now - some of which I was reminded of while I was in Orlando.

"Under Bridges" by Brave Saint Saturn
Yesterday while walking
Beneath an overpass
I saw the figure of Jesus
Standing barefoot on broken glass

His beard was graying
Smell of urine filled the air
Asking if I had some change
Anything that I could spare

His shaking fist balled up
Influenza and pneumonia
Begging God to take his cup

So different from his pictures
Breathing air through yellowed tubes
Jesus Christ, dying of AIDS
Can look right through you

And all have hated
Crucified and walked away
Savior of the prostitutes
Drunkards, rapists, and the gays

Under Bridges,
With hands raised
From the ghettos
They praise His name

Broken, crippled
In the dark of night
Raise your voices
To Jesus Christ

  1. This is an amazing song. We did a human video to it in Master's Commission. You're the greatest, Erik! Hope you are well...

    BTW...I joined the blogspot craze.
