Waters that fail
Lamentations. Nothing to do with the unemployment data released this morning, just some of the most achingly spiritual music ever composed.
Inspired by the Book of Lamentations, traditionally attributed to the prophet Jeremiah. At one point Jeremiah shakes his fist at God and asks him - in biblical language, of course - just what God thinks He's playing at.
This is a kind of Old Time Religion I think we should have more of.
