I am not a “man of faith” in any way, shape or form, yet despite the religious undertones of this song, I find myself thinking of my Bennie every time I listen to it. The poetic lyrics seem to perfectly capture a father’s love for his child, and all the hopes, dreams, fears and compassion I feel for my darling boy… “I don’t believe in the existence of angels / But looking at you I wonder if that’s true…”

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “Into My Arms”
I don’t believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I don’t believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that’s true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

But I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

  1. My wife and i were now excited that Louis could complete his homework through the ideas he discovered through your weblog. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving for free guidance which many others have been making money from. And we recognize we have got the website owner to thank because of that. Most of the explanations you have made, the straightforward web site navigation, the relationships you help foster – it is mostly awesome, and it’s really helping our son and our family imagine that that matter is pleasurable, which is really mandatory. Thank you for all the pieces!
