Rock Song - Christian Meaning

Mumford and Sons - I don't know if you've heard there new album Sigh No More, but it's quite good. I drive a lot for work, so I get some free time to listen to music. It's one of the perks. This album has God all over it. This one in particular harkens to free grace and Christianity.

Here's one example from 'Roll Away Your Stone'.

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we can find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside
You told me that I would find a home,
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals
The darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I seek
It seems as if all my bridges have been burned,
You say that’s exactly how this grace thing works
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive at the restart
