Amazing Love

Just sitting in the living room, listening to a little PEDRO THE LION, and this song came on. It's got to be one of my favorites. It's a hymn that I was familiar with as just a mundane contemporary christian worship song, but in this rendition, it's played with passion and conviction.
You may assume that it's some hardcore tune that is screamed to the heavens, but it's just the opposite. David Bazan (singer/musician/emo-creator) slows down the pace to a lullaby, and sings delicately to God. Bazan does have the reputation of being a sensationalist, critic, liberal and hertic, but things are put in perspective when his voice reverberates the room.
I am weak. I am a failure. I am a hypocrite.
God is in control. God wants me. God died for me.
I am humbled - by the music, the lyrics, the vocals and God himself.
It is the finest song I've used to worship.
