Hallelujah – The Story of the World in a Song

If you have been following my blog for long, you might have been able to tell that I love songs. I love singing songs, listening to songs, dancing to songs, etc. 

One day, I was listening to the Casting Crowns playlist on my phone, trying to relax and dwell on the truths revealed in the songs when Halleluja came on. I recognized the song. I knew the name of the song. But I guess that I had never listened very attentively to the lyrics before. As the first verse started, I was hooked onto the song. I love this song now.

The song tells the story of the world.

Verse 1: God creating the world

Verse 2: The fall and redemption through Jesus

Bridge: The return of Jesus

And, in between each of these pieces of the story, God is being praised and glorified.

Here are the lyrics and the video for the song…

Hallelujah Video

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

On the morning of creation
Father, Son, and the Spirit rise
As they set the world in motion
The morning of the first sunrise
A symphony of golden sunlight
Dancing in the Father’s eyes
He gazes at His masterpiece
As all creation cries

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Man shakes the fist at heaven
The breath of God still in his lungs
A brokenhearted Father grieves
In love, He sends His only Son
He was bruised for our transgressions
Crushed and buried in the ground
As the sunrise finds an empty tomb
The redeemed of God resound

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Holy quiet grips the night
The morning of the last sunrise
Broken slumber, blinding light
Nations tremble at the sight
The Son of Man just split the sky
Every saint and every scoffer
Every king and every pauper
At the name of Jesus, all fall face down
From holy ground, we’ll rise
To meet the Bridegroom in the sky
From Earth to Heaven reigns the Son

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
