Amy Grant - Better Than A Hallelujah

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 the drunkard's 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

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 Hallelujah sometimes)
Better than a Hallelujah
(Better than a Hallelujah sometimes)

Chipper, God hears a melody when we cry out to him, because he wants us to need him. The Bible says God is always there cause he wants to be. our mess is beautiful cause through it, we reach for him.

I think the prayer of the unrighteous is just like that of a person who doesn't know how to pray(a baby), and mind you salvation is for them(luke 5:31)

To the son of God that said he doesn't listen to a drinkers cry. If God did not listen to the crys and prayers of sinners than how could any of us be saved? God listens to anyone that crys out to him.

Brian-saying God doesn't hear a drunkard's cry is NOT your place. Why wouldn't God hear a sinner reaching out to Him? Just look at David in the Bible . . . We are ALL sinners, none are better.

Its really touching how God loves us as humans. No matter how much you have sinned God always redeem us wen we cry out to him.
