Sacred Sunday: “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” Johnny Cash

Standard

 

If the lyrics sound vaguely familiar, it’s because you might know the Moby version of this song.  I won’t link to it because I don’t want to dilute the effect of Cash’s interpretation, which I find to be an intoxicating combination of chilling, inspiring, heartening, and terrifying.  With all the horrific things going on around the world these days, even the most committed atheist wants some powerful entity, higher or not, to cut down those who do such terrible things.

    Some days I want to be persuaded that there is a Heaven. Then there are times I just want someone to assure me that there is a Hell.
