Grateful Grace #2: "Broken Hallelujah" and the Story Behind the Song


Friends,

Here’s a song for those days (or weeks or months or years) when nothing seems to be going right. Yeah, I’ve had them, too. This is what puts the smile back on my face.

by The Afters

I can barely stand right now.
Everything is crashing down,

And I wonder where You are.

I try to find the words to pray.
I don’t always know what to say,
But You’re the one that can hear my heart.
Even though I don’t know what your plan is,
I know You’re making beauty from these ashes.
I’ve seen joy and I’ve seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.
With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.
You know the things that have brought me here.
You know the story of every tear.
‘Cause You’ve been here from the very start.
Even though I don’t know what your plan is,
I know You’re making beauty from these ashes.
I’ve seen joy and I’ve seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.
With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.
When all is taken away,
  don’t let my heart be changed.
Let me always sing Hallelujah
When I feel afraid, don’t let my hope be erased
Let me always sing Hallelujah.
Let me always sing Hallelujah.
I will always sing
I will always sing
Here’s my broken hallelujah.
