The Edge was there when they crucified my Lord

Here 's a very rare live version of  U2's "When Loves Comes to Town"(from "Outside Broadcast".
See the whole crazy broadcast it all here).

I love how Bono can give away his best God lines (voice of God in "Unknown Caller," Scripture in "Miracle Drug" etc.).  The classic verse in this song...
I was there when they crucified my Lord

I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword

I threw the dice when the pierced his side

But I've seen love conquer the great divide
...was  originally sung by guest B.B. King (Watch his wonderful "Mighty heavy lyrics for such a young man" comment in below the 3:33 mark, hmm))..  But in the "Outside Broadcast" concert--in the absence of B.B.-- the Edge gets to preach it..
