I'm currently feelin: argh

Okay. I'm officially going nuts...
Does anyone know the Bible verse that Bono said/paraphrased at the beginning of Streets during the Elevation tour? It used to be on atu2.com, but I can't find it %-p Thanks.

If i'm not mistaken i believe its taken from The Message from Psalm 116. He does it exactly from that version i believe, its near the end (i'd tell you the exact verses but that Bible doesn't have verses! :P) Just curious, what were you planning to use this for?

thanks you :)
Actually, I was just curious... I guess cause I never really knew what he said (he mumbles a bit during that part), and Streets is one of my favorite songs, so I figure I should at least try to figure out what he's saying (lol). :p

U2wanderer.org has probably the most comprehensive U2 lyric archive on the web... here is a link to the lyrics for the live (Elevation Tour) version of Streets that is found on the Walk On CD Single.

Enjoy!

In case you haven't found it yet, it goes something like this....

What can I give back to God for the blessings he's poured out on me? (he repeats a couple of times)
I'll lift high the cup of salvation, raise a toast to our father,
And follow through on the promise I made to him.

Sheesh, and I'm an atheist! lol

well I have, but thank you anyway! :)

heehee that's okay...I had to look all over the place for a bible, cause it's been so long since I've seen one. But that's what is so great about u2.. Bono can use Bible references right and left, but it doesn't seem *preachy* to me. Because I know he chooses his words wisely, and only uses them if it really means something to him.

hehe ;p

I noticed on my bootleg of one of the DC shows (not sure whether it was 6/14/01 or 6/15/01, I'm at work so I can't check) that he did Psalm 40 (from which the song '40' came) instead of Psalm 116. I was at that show and I didn't notice at the time, but it's definitely 40.

Just for that one show though, mostly it was 116.
