I'm an atheist- that's not the point of this, but if you want to say a bunch of stuff about it, feel free; I'm in South Carolina, I'm used to it- but I love this song, it's so beautiful and inspired. Everyone looks at me weird when I sing this because it's all about praying.

A beautiful adaptation of the Negro spiritual referring to formerly necessary secret midnight masses when group worship was punished.
