Praise him!


En av de strålande vårdagarna som drabbat oss den senaste tiden var jag ute med kameran och fick den här bilden. Inget särskilt kanske, men jag tycker att det finns något oändligt att skåda i de nakna grenarnas virrvarr. Det gick inte att urskilja var det ena trädet började och det andra slutade. Därtill den klarblå himlen som en fond. Vackert, tänkte jag.

Nick Cave, den australiensiske musikern och poeten (och min största idol sedan jag var femton...) har skrivit en i mina ögon fantastiskt lovsång - "Get ready for love". Den sången hördes inne i mitt huvud när jag såg den här bilden.

För ibland är livet inte svårare än så här.

Get ready for love! Praise Him!
Get ready for love! Praise Him!
Get ready for love! Get ready!

Well, most of all nothing much
ever really happens
And God rides high up in the ordinary sky
Until we find ourselves at our most distracted
And the miracle that was promised
creeps quietly by

Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world
Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world

Get ready for love! Praise Him!
Get ready for love! Praise Him!

The mighty wave their hankies from their
high-windowed palace
Sending grief and joy down in supportable doses
And we search high and low without
merty or malice
While the gate to the Kingdom swings
shut and closes

Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world
Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world

Praise Him till you've forgotten
what you're praising Him for
Praise Him till you've forgotten
what you're praising Him for
Then praise Him a little bit more

Get ready for love! Praise Him!
Get ready for love! Get ready!

I searched the seven seas and I've looked
under the carpet
And browsed through the brochures
that govern the skies
Then I was just hanging around, doing
nothing and looked up to see
His face burned in the retina of your eyes

Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world
Calling every boy and girl
Calling all around the world

Get ready for love! Praise Him!
Get ready for love! Praise Him!
