Sunday Sentiments: Hallelujah

Sunday Sentiments is an attempt to record what God has been teaching me and the way in which He does it.

While nothing compares to the original "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen, some might find the lyrics to be a bit provocative or lacking a certain spiritual soundness.  I'm such a music lover that I appreciate it for what it is. There's a reason a million people have covered it, from the well-known Jeff Buckley version to Justin Timberlake.  It simply resonates.We are all crying out Hallelujah to something or someone.

It's no surprise that someone came along and "Christianized" the song.  Enter Lincoln Brewster's "Another Hallelujah."  The beautiful music, some of the haunting original lyrics, and yet now the Hallelujah is directed towards the Lord we glorify.

Today simply listen, reflect, and enjoy.
