01. Better Than A Hallelujah

Somewhere Down The Road
by Amy Grant



 

God loves a lullaby in a mother’s tears in the dead of night • Better than a
Hallelujah sometimes • God loves a 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
A woman holding on for 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 a church bell ringing • Better than a choir singing out, singing
out

Behind the Song:
“I’ve loved this song since I first heard it. The honesty and vulnerability of the lyric reminds me that to pray means to come as I am, imperfections and all, because ultimately, God seeks communion with us, the real us…and that’s freeing.” - Amy Grant
