Your usual, casual name, Jesus,
as contemporary as blue jeans
as shady and cool as a sun visor
sometimes it bores me
but here you really come,
Jesus Christ — mad, right,
all fire and freedom in the eyes
like the One who first loved me.
Light a lamp, friends — 
Let’s stay up all night!

Wow. IT's been a long time since I thought about the status of my lamp.

Unlike the rest of the unlucky members of the bridegroom party, the oil's there...i'm just not sure what i did with the matches.

Dear Jesus. Will you light 'er up?
