40, but it's a paraphrase of scripture so that's kind of a cop-out, same for Drowning Man.....I think Streets provokes the most spiritual emotions, but lyrics-wise, maybe Grace?

For me...tomorrow...an earnest lament of a mother's death with the realization that god has torn down the curtain and that he too will be there someday with god and his mom.

How about I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR. Is this spirtual or anti-spiritual?

maybe 40 but think Gloria is their Best Hymm song..

come to think of it, most of October has religous overtones...

I expect to hear this playing when I go to heaven.


Walk On could be described as a modern day psalm

Where The Streets Have No Name-the name of the song speaks for itself

I'd say "Wake Up Dead Man," but some people might not be convinced because of the "F" word. Maybe they wanted it to be a paradox?

MLK is like a lullaby - one of my faves. Also Drowning Man, Streets, 40 and Grace. Wake Up Dead Man is too desperate sounding to be in there.
