dropkick murphys has a celtic punk version! i'm sorry i can't link it (youtube is being difficult for me right now) but it's easily accessible there if you search.

Modern gospel okay? The Gaither Vocal Band does a good rendition.

I've always been partial to The Lemonheads' sprightly punk/powerpop/rock/thrashy version, back from when The Lemonheads were awesome.

Ani DiFranco does a nice version on her album Dialate.

I have to admit, I always enjoyed this rendition at the end of the otherwise weird-as-hell Maverick remake.

It disturbs me that someone produced this rendition, presumably not as a parody.

But, seriously, there's also "Broken Vessels", by Hillsong Worship, which is a quite nice rendition.

And here's the aforementioned Dropkick Murphys' rendition -- the punk kicks in at 1m8s.

Try Tramaine Hawkins -- great version.
