A song that encouraged my heart.

Mike was listening to our friends' ipod. There's a song by Sufjan Stevens called Vito's Ordination Song. I listened to in the afternoon and had a great cry. It's a must listen to kind of song. Below are the lyrics. It's really beautiful.


I always knew you
in your mothers arms
i have called your name
i have an idea
placed in your mind
to be a better man
ive made a crown for you
put it in your room
and when the bride groom comes
there will be noise
there will be glad
and a perfect bed
and when you write a poem
i know the words
i know the sounds
before you write it down
only wear your clothes
i wear them too
i wear your shoes
and your jacket too
i always knew you
in your mothers arms
i have called you son
ive made amends
between father and son
or if you havent one
rest in my arms
sleep in my bed
there is a design
to what i did and said
