One thing that I discovered this weekend is that there aren’t many good Easter songs out there. There’s even less good Easter music videos. I searched far and wide and most of the ones I found were either off the soundtrack of God’s Not Dead and from a Kirk Cameron film. I don’t think even the most religious of our readers want that.
So, I went with this song and video from Johnny Cash. Goin’ By The Book starts with a litany of bad things: pollution, riots, war, civil unrest. Cash goes on to sing that it’s all going to lead to the events discussed in the book of Revelations. Interestingly enough, it sounds like Cash could be describing all of the problems of the world today but this song was actually recorded 32 years ago, showing I guess that there have always been problems and people have always seen them as being evidence of the end times.
I’m not really a fan of most Christian music but Johnny Cash is the exception.
