Monday Night at the Cafe: Magnificent

This new song off U2's newest album was played at the Cafe last Friday night, but it's so good - and so new - that it's worth putting it up again tonight. We learned off Twitter that Coldplay this evening "went onstage to u2's Magnificent in Perth- a truly beautiful song." That it is. Bono talks a little bit about it in the radio station interview here.

If Coldplay's Viva la Vida was for 2008, Magnificent is for 2009, at least here at the Cafe.

I will bless the LORD at all times:
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the LORD:
the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the LORD, and he heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened:
and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him,
and delivereth them.

Psalm 34 1-7 (KJV)

Funny how I kept reading the title as "Magnificat" while I was waiting for the page to finish loading. :)
