Happy Sunday: Do Not Ask the Price that I Paid

I’ve been waiting for a new Mumford & Sons album for at least two years, and it finally came out this week. So far, I think this is my favorite song. Something about the “let me die where I lie” line reminds me of that age-old protestant prayer that I had to say as child bed.

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, and if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.” It’s sort of fitting, as Marcus Mumford is apparently a preacher’s kid.
