A prayer in the deep

Leonard Cohen, "If It Be Your Will", off of Various Positions.

Religion has been a plague upon this planet since its first invention by elites intent upon controlling the people via the power of rank superstition. Yet the fundamental urges addressed by religion -- the mystery of being, the mysteries of the human heart and of human existence -- lead to some religious art and music being profound and deep. I need not be religious to appreciate this somber prayer. I need only be human.
