Yep, and DM sing it with more pizzazz and conviction. Theirs is a far more ominous and satirical song, whereas yer man Cash sounds like he's reading the lyrics for the first time. Yucksville. 8 for the DM version, 3 for the JC effort.

How do I put this so that non-Americans can visualize the frame of reference? Mr. Cash’s point of view is of someone who truly believes in the efficacy of a “personal Jesus”. It is filled with pathos and a tragedy borne of desperation. The Depeche Mode version was indeed satirical, more educated, and sarcastic, and in comparison a bit trite. I don’t know enough about Germany to opine but I’ve never seen the kind of raw simple religious fervor in the UK that is demonstrated occasionally here in the USA. With all due respect, I suspect that it may be difficult for contemporary Europeans to understand the context from which Cash is coming. The performance is about simple and humble faith driven by deep desperation and as such is quite an insightful expression. Depeche Mode sees the subject of the song as an object of ridicule whereas Cash empathizes and exposes a rich sense of human tragedy through that empathy. This song might be about simple people who speak in tongues, are duped by TV preachers, and grasp their Bibles like shields to ward off the unknown; they are usually displayed as ignorant clowns buy mainstream culture but Cash is seeing the human nobility in their innocence and meekness. 

Johnny Cash is not one of my favorite artists but this tune is truly great.
