A Message about The Message?

My song is love
Love to the loveless shown
And it goes on
You don't have to be alone

Your heavy heart
Is made of stone
And it's so hard to see you
clearly
You don't have to be on your own
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
Oh I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
Got to get that message home

My song is love
My song is love unknown
But I'm on fire for you,
clearly
You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
Oh I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that im aiming at
And I'm nothing on my own
Got to get that message home

And I'm not gonna stand and wait
Not gonna believe it until its much too late
On a platform I'm gonna stand and say
That I'm nothing on my own

And I love you, please come home
My song is love, is love unknown
And I've got to get that message home.

"A Message" by Chris Martin on Coldplay's album X&Y. He has clearly stolen /" been inspired" by bits of Samuel Crossman's amazing hymn "My Song is Love Unknown" but it doesn't make it a bad song for all that! And it makes it all the more appropriate to purloin it for some presentation of the gospel.
