“With all of my heart, and all of my soul, and all of my mind and all of my strength.”
If you haven’t heard of Catholic folk artist Joe Zambon, get on over to iTunesright now. We recommend starting with his album Brothers, which, according to apologist Matt Fradd, “is sophisticatedly simple and susurrantly robust.” He also makes sure to note that, “Joe’s musical ability is as exceptional as his beard is manly.”
Today, we bring you a more stripped-down, solemn piece for our Songs for Holy Weekseries: “Jesus I Love You” from his EP In Lethbridge With Strings.
It’s a simple song. Perfect as we approach the great Paschal Mystery about which endless tomes have been penned, and yet, at the same time, a mystery for which there are no words.
At the end of my life, after all of my studies, after all of my labor, and in response to all God has done for me, if all I can say are these few words — if I can say them in truth — it will be enough:
Jesus I love you Jesus I love you Jesus I love you more and more With all of my heart And all of my soul And all of my mind And all of my strength
