The chorus of this song could be lifted from any Contemporary Christian artist, and it’s the most literal take on the Bible-themed The Life of the World to Come, but it’s prevented from being a Sparrow Records outtake by its knowing sense that faith is blind and hope is audacious: “Won’t take the medication / But it’s good to have around / A kind and loving god won’t let my small ship run aground.” Plus, Jon Wurster is a badass drummer.

Last week, we posted NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert with the Mountain Goats where John Darnielle did a solo acoustic version of “Psalms 40:2”. Watch a full band version of the song after the jump, and bask in the glory of Peter Hughes’ bass tone…
