    Jewels
     
    Your love is teaching me how to KNEEL...

    I'm slowly coming round to the new U2 album. musically nowhere near as adventurous as their thrilling 1990s outings, nevertheless lyrics like these rise, sparkle, shine out - real jewels. And you know, of course, the singer means what he sings. Niggardy Christians bemoan the band's churchless faith. I'm fulla church to the eyebrows and I just wish I had something even approaching the humility and insight in that astonishing line. Your love is teaching me how ... how to KNEEL... let it be so now.
