Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Better Than A Hallelujah

"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad. Let the distant shores rejoice, clouds and thick darkness surrounds Him, righteousness and justice are the foundations of His throne. A fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side, His lightening lights up the world. The earth sees and trembles, the mountains melt like wax before the Lord. Before the Lord of all the earth the heavens declare His righteousness and all peoples will see His glory!"

There's a song that I've been listening to a lot this week. A song Amy Grant sings called "Better Than a Hallelujah". I love the tune and the words are very neat. It talks about different people going through different struggles and how they're cry for Christ's help is just an meaningful as a choir singing praises. It's a really great song. "God loves a lullabye,
And a mother's tears in the dead of night
Are better than a halleljuah somethimes..."
"God loves a drunkard's cry,
A soldier's plea not to let him die,
Better than a hallelujah...sometimes"
" We pour out our miseries,
God just hears the melodies,
Beautiful the mess we are the honest cries of a breaking heart
Are better than a hallelujah...sometimes.""The woman holding on to life,
A dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a hallelujah...sometimes"

Tears of shame for what's been done,
The silence when the words won't come

Are better than a hallelujah...sometimes.

Better than church bell ringing,
Better than a choir singing out...singing out!

We pour out our miseries
God just hears the melodies
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of a breaking heart
Are better than a hallelujah."
