Bridge Over Troubled Water
A favorite hobby of mine is putting bible verses to related words in love song lyrics. The song Bridge Over Troubled Water to date has been my favorite song to do this. According to a quick online search, Paul Simon wrote the song about providing comfort to a person in need. The final verse was written about Simon’s then wife Peggy Harper, who had recently noticed her first gray hairs (Sail on, silver girl).
John 14:26 states: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost(Spirit), whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things.” - KJV
