A few weeks ago I promised to pick a gospel song for our Best Ignatian Songs feature. Here’s a good one: “Picture of Jesus,” by Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama. I like the way the lyrics play with “picture.” It’s an image of Jesus hanging on the wall, and also a longing to be like Jesus.
We long to be a picture of Jesus
In His arms so many prayers rest
I long to be a picture of Jesus
With Him we shall be forever blessed.
