The Perfect Playlist Pt 6: The perfect song right now

fullsizeoutput_13a2At the end of arguably the best Sports TV show of all time, Friday Night Lights, is the perfect song for me right now.  It’s in my new playlist entitled @Right Now, which is a collection of songs that I am really liking to listen to at the moment.

The song is titled Devil Knows You’re Dead by the band Delta Spirit.  Here is the first verse:

“May the wind be always at your back

And the sunshine warm upon your face

May the rains fall soft upon your field

Until the day we meet again”

It’s a hauntingly beautiful song that is expansive and emotive with a great arrangement and some really cool guitar work. The song strikes me as really Psalm-like and after a little digging I found the song is based on the Irish blessing, May the road rise to meet you, which is a line later in the song.

The chorus includes the lines “Before the devil knows your dead, may you be in heaven my friend.”

The blessing call to my mind the following scripture:

May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.  May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.

Numbers 6:24-26 NLT

And that is where I am at right now.  Asking for blessings.  Have a good day.  God Bless!
