Best Ignatian Songs: Have I Told You Lately that I Love You

Van Morrison says that his song “Have I Told You Lately that I Love You” is a prayer to God. It’s an Ignatian song: its style is conversational, it’s full of gratitude, and the lyrics echo the Contemplation on the Love of God at the end of the Spiritual Exercises:

There’s a love that’s divine

And it’s yours and it’s mine

And it shines like the sun

At the end of the day

We will give thanks and pray

To the One
