“And like Goliath, they’ll be conquered…”

Here’s a cover of a great Dylan song by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, a popular Irish folk group of the ’50s and ’60s who helped to popularize Irish and Celtic music in America. Sadly, the last surviving Clancy brother, Liam, died in December 2009. Here is one of their last performances as a group, from 1993.

This is a very happy apocalyptic song (if you can imagine such a thing), which celebrates, in my view, the coming of God’s kingdom. Enjoy!
