September 19, 2007

Disclaimer: any religious references in the following are there because U2 put them there. It's got nothing to do with me, ok?



One, two, three, four

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song?
How long to sing this song?
How long, how long
How long, how long to sing this song?

He set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and fear

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song?
How long to sing this song?
How long, how long
How long, how long to sing this song?

Ah, one of my favourite Psalms - Psalm number 40. What's the significance?

#Debi said...

Arrgh, matey, and avast! Aye, tell us what ye've been waitin' for. We be all breathless with the suspense of it all...

Seriously, is this the anniversary of a very cool U2 concert you attended in the past?

tudnegh: Pirate-ese for tell us already...

Tilly - the significance is not in the fact that it's a Psalm.

Debi - no, although I *did* attend a very cool U2 concert at one time.

Hint - check the blog's tagline.

"nwuup" - what Ricardipus says when people ask him for the answer.

About 3 mins 20 secs if I remember.

Ricardipus said...

Tilly got it (with a big fat hint left in the comments over at her place).

I am this: officially middle aged. Ye gads indeed.

The Wrath of Dawn said...

I thought you weren't middle-aged until 45...

#Debi said...

Ah, well then, happy birthday! They say that 40 is the new 30, so I think you've a while to go before you have to call yourself middle-aged. Actually, as long as you talk like a pirate once a year, you may never have to call yourself middle-aged...

Belated congrats/commiserations [delete as applicable] on your big day!
And there's nothing middle-aged about 40...I class my dad as middle-aged, so you have many years to go yet. :)

'srbkgl' - sound make when gorging on b'day cake

Anna said...

Happy belated birthday, R'pus! You're not THAT old. Yet. :)

zoe said...

belated happy birthday, ricardipus. i wouldn't say 40 is old - it's just that you act so old. nevermind - hope you had a good day.
