What Music Sounds Like in Heaven

My brother sometimes watches Tombstone before a big presentation.
Guys in high school always listened to Welcome to the Jungle before a big game.
I have discovered the song we'll sing in heaven, and I listened to it this morning before giving a sermon on freedom on the main stage at LHC. Sung in Sigur Ros's Vonlenska or Hopelandic, the song that inspires and beckons me to worship our saving God, with giant orchestral swells and the haunting voice of Jonsi Birgisson's is Ara Batur. Listen to the song in its fullness here. Almost nine minutes of ecstasy. Make sure you wait to the end. Its the best part.
