Today is the 15th anniversary of my dad's death. I've talked about that in a couple of other posts (namely here and here), and I always try to mark it on the blog in some way. This year, I'm doing it with this, the song we had sung at his funeral.
I really, really love it, and think this cover is especially beautiful.
The song comes from a poem by Hannah Senesh (who you should all go read about because honestly, what a bad-ass), and the lyrics roughly translate to:
My God, My God,
May these things never end:
The sand and the sea
The crash of the water
The lightning in the sky
The prayers of Man.
I think that's as good a tribute as any.
