Mary Rocap: Music

Hallelujah

(Hallelujah off of Indan Summer)

the first two lines of the verse come directly from I Samuel 3:1.

the hush now portion- a nod to the calling of Samuel.

The premise - the need of a better and more loving and welcoming political climate

Hush now, I think I hear someone calling out my name

Oh yeah, I hear it now someone's calling out my name

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

The word of the Lord is rare these days; visions are not widespread

When you're lost you may not care where you may be led

And by the way, are we going to a place where the lion lays down with the lamb?

If that's not where you're taking me I got to find somebody who can.

 

Hush now I hear a call, I hear my name in the wind

Oh Lord, I hear you now, you're calling me in the wind

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

We've forgotten all we knew and now there's no one left to ask

We've lost the stories, we've lost the songs, grew shallow roots of grass

I believe we can live again in peace throughout the land

Where strangers are not foes, but friends, offering a helping hand

 

Hush now, angels sing; a distant anthem rings

Sing out, in harmony, let hallelujahs begin

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
