If it be your will

I randomly picked up a Vanity Fair the other day, to discover celebrated atheist Christopher Hitchens talking about 'If it be your will'.

There is a slight irony there. It is at least a possibility that Hitch is unaware of it...



It's a song I'm finding comforting at the moment:


If it be your will 
That I speak no more 
And my voice be still 
As it was before 
I will speak no more 
I shall abide until 
I am spoken for 
If it be your will 
If it be your will 
That a voice be true 
From this broken hill 
I will sing to you 
From this broken hill 
All your praises they shall ring 
If it be your will 
To let me sing 
From this broken hill 
All your praises they shall ring 
If it be your will 
To let me sing

There are reasons for my lack of posting recently. 

Some time soon I'll talk about them.

  1. You know, honestly, I think he just appreciates the metaphor... I don't think he realizes other people do to. Afterall, they actually believe in those fairy tales.... Right?
