A New Favorite

A long lost high school classmate posted this on Facebook this morning. I had never heard of this guy, but he is exceptional. I just had to post it here.

They left out the middle verse of that song.

"And then I saw the dream was changed,
the streets no longer rang.
Hushed were the glad Hosanna's
the little children sang.

The sun grew dark with mystery
the morn' was cold and chill.
As the shadow of a cross arose
upon a lonely hill.
As the shadow of a cross arose
upon a lonely hill!"

I can see why the left it, it's a bit too Christian for normal consumption. But it makes the opening lyrics for the third verse (the second he sung) kind of out of place.

But yes, a beautifully strong voice. Not so much trained and honed as it is raw power and energy.
