On this Good Friday let me share my favorite rendition of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” sung along with the New Voices of Hope Gospel Choir in 1988 as part of the tour for the Rattle and Hum album:

All the lyrics of this song are poignant, but on a day like today U2’s atonement theory works stands out to me:

You broke the bonds/

You loosed the chains/

Carried the cross/

Of my shame/

Of my shame.

You know I believe it

The metaphysics and metaphors can be debated anytime, but sometimes they’re best when just sung aloud.
