U2


Yahweh Lyrics

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don't make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break

Really respect how they are not afraid to sing about God (Yahweh in Hebrew) and submitting one's will to Him. Beautiful - and how can you not respect their continued focus on God?!

Music Expert is clueless; U2 have always been overtly Christian and this song is just another example of them expressing their faith.

The reason he sings about the sun coming up, is the rise of Lucifer. This band would be very angry if they thought this song was taken to be Christian in any way. This song is ANTI god :(

Yahweh, our Father, sends grace- lodged inn comfort tonite under 778 angel wings with 3699 singing saints- U can witness life spring in barren soil watered by 760 daily tears shed for U
