In Your Name

In my post CSN Live! I wrote about a fundraiser concert that I was fortunate enough to be able to attend featuring Crosby, Stills, and Nash. At that concert in 2008 I heard "In Your Name" by Graham Nash for the first time.

I commented that Nash's new song "was hauntingly beautiful and at the same time such a powerful and timely song. Graham's song is actually a prayer for peace and it nearly brought me to tears."

I have tried several times to find a video of In Your Name, and finally this morning I was successful.

In Your Name by Graham Nash

Lord, can you help me
Help me deal with this pain?
Can you stop all this killing in your name?

Lord, if you’re out there
You know the whole world is going insane
So can you stop all of this killing in your name?

Down through the ages we've all come to love
Wise men leading the way
So read all the pages in the books from above
But don't get led astray

And Lord, are you listening
To a prayer from a simple man?

And can you stop all the sadness?
Can you stop all of this madness?
Can you stop all of this killing?
In your name

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
~Jesus (Matthew 5:9)

Peace, Love, and Light!
