I absolutely love this song - - it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it!

I recall listening to it with my soon-to-be wife, live in concert at the Paramount Theater in Springfield, MA back in the '90's.

Great memories, albeit a bittersweet song.

I also saw a really great exhibit about the wreck at a Maritime Museum in Cleveland, OH in 2019.

I was in my 2nd yr of college when she sank.  Remember it well.
Tragic!

Probably the most vivid and chilling lyric I have ever heard, "Does anyone know where the love of god goes when the waves turn the minutes to hours".
