Pride (In The Name Of Love) Lyrics

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love
In the name of Love!

He juxtaposes lyrics about MLK with Jesus Christ. Many of Bono's lyrics are very Christian in nature; here he talks about the dignity that is sustained in spite of persecution to death.

Plz? Look into Christian beliefs on justification, charity, Judas' betrayal of Jesus with a kiss and Jesus' mission of love that ended in crucifixion before being so ignorantly dismissive.
