Song of the Day: Andrew Osenga

Please enjoy my favorite song from Andrew Osenga’s Letters to the Editor, Volume II, available here in the Rabbit Room.  I remember listening to this song on tour–headphones on, curled up in my bunk on the bus, missing my family, missing my God, pricked by that terrible feeling of incompleteness that only comes when everything is going really well, and everything is not.  I put my iPod on repeat and went to sleep with the phrase “YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE, AND YOU ARE, AND YOU WERE AND WILL BE” ringing in my ears. And there was rest.

Let Us Know You

My friends have sent me letters I’ve read them all and then I tried to make sense of the stories But I was overwhelmed

So much anger, so much pain We’ve had to go numb to survive

So I am closing my eyes And I’m praying for those in my life Let us feel, let us love, let us be alive Let us know You

My friends have shared their secrets I have given mine The anarchy of what we think No one will ever find

But in the daylight, to our surprise Our secrets are shades of the same

So I am closing my eyes And I’m praying for those in my life Let us feel, let us love, let us be alive Let us know You

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with You You parted the seas, You hung up the flame in the night to guide us through You drew in the sand, dropped the stones from violent hands You heard the cry of the crow and set Your eyes on a faithless friend You are who You are, and You are, and You were and will be

I am opening my eyes And I’m praying for those in my life Let us feel, let us love, let us be alive Let us know You
