Cradle Hymns - IV: The End of the World

Doomsday is in this year, so it seems appropriate to post a cradle hymn on the subject. The Wailin' Jennys' excellent "Apocalypse Lullaby" gives voice to human love, strong and calm in the midst of bombs, wars, and the destruction of societal systems. It is at once immediate and prophetic, of our time and of a time just beyond the horizon - not an expected subject, but more striking and beautiful for it.
