Saving Mary

The Holy Spirit in Pop Culture…U2!

Posted on by Deidre Havrelock

Who doesn’t love Bono and U2? Well, maybe some of you don’t…but me, and my cousin Cora, we love em! I particularly like the song “She Moves in Mysterious Ways.” I like this song simply because it reminds me so much of the Holy Spirit. Did Bono purposefully mean for this song to be about the Holy Spirit? I don’t know for sure (according to blogs out there, it seems that he did), but regardless…there’s something about women and the Holy Spirit that belong together. Lyrics and video are below:

“She Moves in Mysterious Ways”

Johnny take a walk with your sister, the moon Let her pale light in to fill up your room You’ve been living underground, eating from a can You’ve been running away from what you don’t understand
Love, she’s slipping, you’re sliding down Will she be there when you hit the ground?
It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright She moves in mysterious ways It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright She moves in mysterious ways
Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain Let her talk about the things you can’t explain To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees boy
She’s the wave, she turned the tide And nobler still, she knows why
It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright She moves in mysterious ways It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright She moves in mysterious ways, yeah
It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright Lift my days, light up my nights
One day you look back and you see Where you were held out by this love While you can stand there, you could move on this moment Follow this feeling
It’s alright, it’s alright, its alright She moves in mysterious ways It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright She moves in mysterious ways
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright We move through the miracle days It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright Spirit moves in mysterious ways
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright (It will move you now, she moves with it) Lift my days, light up my nights
