Comments:I believe this tag was written and originally sung on youtube (blank landscape image) by Travis Tabares (Bass of McPhly, Revolution)

The tag is based off a song by Eric Whitacre, “When David Heard” originally commissioned for the BYU choirs. The Text:

When David heard that Absalom was slain he went up into his chamber over the gate and wept, my son, my son, O Absalom my son, would God I had died for thee!
- King James Bible; II Samuel, 18:33
