better than a hallelujah
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

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
