Hallelujahs

To make up for the fact that I didn't include any pictures in my last posting, I am posting this song today, complete with illustrations.

It is called Hallelujahs and it was written by Chris Rice and recorded by Kathy Trocolli.

A purple sky to close the day

I wade the surf where dolphins play
The taste of salt, the dance of waves
And my soul wells up with hallelujahs

A lightning flash, my pounding heart
A breaching whale, a shooting star
Give testimony that You are
And my soul wells up with hallelujahs




Oh praise Him all His mighty works
There is no language where you can't be heard
Your song goes out to all the earth
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

O cratered moon and the sparrow's wings
O thunder's boom and Saturn's rings
Unveil our Father as we sing
And my soul wells up with hallelujahs

Oh praise Him all His mighty works
There is no language where you can't be heard
Your song goes out to all the earth
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

The pulse of life within my wrist
A fallen snow, a rising mist
There is no higher praise than this
And my soul wells up
Oh my soul wells up
Yes my soul wells up with hallelujahs


Oh, praise Him all His mighty works
There is no language where you can't be heard
Your song goes out to all the earth
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

UPDATE: I just heard on the radio that Slidell, LA is under water, due to the hurricane. This is the home of blogger buddy Dana. Our thoughts, prayers, and best wishes go out to Dana and her family.

I love your pictoral of Chris Rice's song Hallelujahs. It happens to be one of my favorites. In fact I will be singing it at our church in a couple of weeks. That song was the inspiration for the title of my blog. Blessings to you.
