9 Minutes of “40”

Sunday night at church we sang Psalm 40.  It was a nice rendition of the song and all, but I couldn’t help but think that maybe we could’ve sung U2’s (shortened) version of the Old Testament song of waiting and salvation.  So later Sunday night I risked a “deep dive” into YouTube to see if I could find a good rendition of the song that so often served as the end of U2’s concerts.  What I found was a recent post from a thirty-year old concert that captures something vital about a band that has done some amazing work.  It starts with some paraphrasing of the song, turns into a sing-along, and then morphs into a few different things (including the band’s requisite slow-fade from the stage at concert’s end).  I think it’s time well-spent.
