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)

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.

I think the lyrics are disturbing. It does make it sound like God takes pleasure from our misery. I don't believe he does, but someone who does not already trust God is likely to be repulsed by this

God doesn't just want us when bad things happen, he wants us all the time. Would you rather have a friend who calls when only bad things happen or one who calls just to say hi? This song is backwards.
