AMY GRANT - Better Than A Hallelujah Lyrics

God loves a lullaby
In a mother's tears in the dead of night
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.
God loves a drunkards cry,
The soldier's plea not to let him die
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

The woman holding on for life,
The dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes
The tears of shame for what's been done,
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

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

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah


Repeat Chorus

i think it's a matter of perspective...i don't hear the song demeaning "hallelujah". i hear the emphasis on a lost and hurting person crying out to God. Psalm 51:17 says, "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise." The Lord is close to those who are broken hearted. When someone cries out to God with total sincerity and honesty, it truly gets God's attention. God wants an honest heart over a religious praise. It's beautifully written. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and dying...that's what I hear in this song.

Does anybody even care that this song is a theological aberration? Yes, it is a touchy-feely tune but it is pablum for the Scripturally illiterate. This song is not Scriptural. Pure and simple. The word "Hallelujah" is the highest form of worship in the entirety of God's creation. The elders surrounding the throne of God in heaven fall on their faces and cast their crowns at the Lamb's feet in utter awe and reverence when the word is spoken. The entirety of God's creation in heaven, earth and under the earth are moved to worship God when that word is spoken! Yet this woman dares to suggest that she's come up with something better? Can anyone improve on the Divine imperative to Worship the Creator? I think not! It pains me to see how easily this gullible generation swallows hook line and sinker anything that is packaged as "Christian" these days. The attitude seems to be, "Who cares? It sounds nice so, it must be good! Right?"
