Love it will not betray you
Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be
There is a design, an alignment, a cry
Of my heart to see
The beauty of love as it was made to be
-Mumford & Sons
My husband got me the first Mumford & Sons album for my birthday. Or, as it is now known at our house, the "new" Mumford & Sons. The old one is their second album, because we got it first. Both are favourites of both my speaking children, which means I hear the words of Mumford several times a day. So far, I don't mind a bit - probably because he writes stuff like this. It's such a fitting lyric for this time of year, with its journey back to Pascha and Paradise: "the beauty of love as it was made to be."
Walk strong, my friends.
