Essential Songs:Art of Virtue by Adrienne Young

adrienne-young-essentials

I heard this song on a listening station at Austin’s Waterloo Records, stopped shopping, bought the CD, put in my CD player and drove home.

This song has one of my favorite lines, “a joy ride on the learning curve”.  Read the lyrics and tell me you don’t want to hand this song to all of your friends, even if you don’t like bluegrass.
Gonna start a revolution,
Made of action, not of words
Practicing the Art of Virtue
A joy ride on the learning curve

Gonna keep my eyes wide open
Till I have something to say
Start to put my house in order
Save some money for a rainy day

Gonna do just what I ought to
Finish what I say I’ll do
Spend my time on something useful
Worry less and speak the truth

I’d like to learn some moderation
Know just when enough’s enough
Meditate on being tranquil
Injure none and bear no grudge

I let go of my resistance
Son of God is inside me
I’m waitin’ for the real thing, honey
Ain’t nothin’ wrong with chastity

If I could walk the path of Jesus
Live each day the best I can
Follow in those humble footsteps
I might reach the promised land

Gonna start a revolution
Made of action, not of words
Practicing the Art of Virtue
A joy ride on a learning curve

Come and join this revolution
Made of action, not of words
Practicing the Art of Virtue
It’s all the rage, oh have you heard?

Is the theology of this song correct? Can we experience the promised land before we get to heaven? Wouldn’t it be great if we all just tried practicing the Art of Virtue a littler harder?
