Oh My God . . .

I don't know what it is about Jars of Clay's "Oh My God" that makes me cry nearly every time I hear it (Find a sample at Amazon here, or listen to the whole song on my buddy Mike's Xanga page here).  Perhaps it's because more than any song I've ever heard, it most adeptly captures the tension of the "not yet and the already" of the Kingdom.  Perhaps because it demonstrates the beauty of the morose, and the wonderful tragedy of this thing we call "life".  Perhaps it has extra power today because of my own emotional struggles with my partner and our dealings with his family.  Either way, it brings such peace to my soul.
