All Sing Hallelujah

aaron niequist

 

the devil’s tryin’ to steal-a-my – joy, joy, joy

but God has not forgotten my – cry, cry, cry  

 

so let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

God has not forgotten my cry  

 

my heart keeps threat’ning to –

break, break, break 

my hope keeps slippin’ a –

way, way, way

  

so let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

God has not forgotten my cry

 

i’m swimmin’ in a sea of my – tears, tears, tears 

but God keeps drownin’ my – fears, fears, fears

  

so let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

let’s all sing Hallelujah

God has not forgotten my cry

 

let’s lift glory to Heaven

let’s lift glory to Heaven

let’s lift glory to Heaven 

God has not forgotten my cry

 

so let’s live like we believe it

let’s live like we believe it

let’s live like we believe it 

God has not forgotten our cry

God has not forgotten our cry

God has not forgotten our cry

All Sing Hallelujah

one of my favorite styles of gospel music are the old spirituals. I love the passion. I’m inspired by the courageous honesty. these are songs of great hope grown in the soil of deep pain, which is why so many are still around today.

I don’t claim to have lived nearly deeply enough to write a song worthy of being called “a spiritual,” but this was my attempt to capture some of the grit and celebration of this amazing tradition. it's a ridiculous tune in many ways, but I love how it invites people to sing different parts and carry the song as one big choir. and by the time we hit the “so let’s all sing hallelujah!” chorus, we have ourselves some old time church.
