“HAVE MY EYES SEEN YOUR SALVATION?” (Lk 2:22-32): 02 February 2008 (Presentation of the Lord)
I first heard Jason Mraz’s “You and I Both” about three years ago. Nothing beats a catchy tune–which this is–but it’s also a little too wordy. The best part, however, is that somehow it works!
It’s a love song, but it may well have been Simeon’s song when he gets to cradle the Christ Child in his arms after waiting for years for some kind of sign of the salvation of Israel.
