"The bright light of salvation..."

Several hard things happening to good friends and acquaintances recently, as well as several things I've been reading [see the post about a Russell Moore essay below], reminded me of this, originally posted in January, 2010:

Right Wing Bob likes this version of "Death is Not the End" better than the only one Dylan recorded:
Someone who heard the song from a bootleg tape of those Infidels sessions was the singer Mike Scott of a combo called the Waterboys.
