Dont read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes when you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen.

THE COOLEST CHRISTIAN SONG EVER!!!! The song of the Jesus movement late 60's - early 70's. A real revival. It wasn't announced by man, but by the Holy Spirit. The ripples of this wave are still felt today. I'm a product of it.
