"Hallelujah"

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe thereís a God above
But all Iíve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
Itís not a cry you can hear at night
Itís not somebody who has seen the light
Itís a cold and itís a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well, really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

What are you singing for? How is your wife? I hope you have learned from you behavior. Repenting means to cease bad behavior.

I AM the wife, thanks. And I am singing b/c I love to sing, am ok at it, and this is a song which represents a lot of what I am, we are, going through. You don't have to like that I posted it or even sing to it. I like it, and I will sing my heart out as I please. Thanks again.

Hey RITA,

YOU F*CKING LYING SL*T JEZEBEL,

DONT FORGET WHAT HAPPENED TO JEZEBEL..........

ALL THEY FOUND WAS A SKULL,

AND THE REMAINS OF HER HANDS AND FEET.

THE DOGS DEVOURED HER FLESH ALIVE.

Sorry, I am just feeling a little down with all the insane attacks on me and my family on that ridiculous "I Support" page on Facebook..

You obviously didn't know it was me, so my apologies for being a little snappy, it was unwarranted. I just wanted to share some very moving and profound poetry with everyone. I think it touches us all in form or another...

Sorry I didn't know. Singing is good and it comes from the heart.

I wouldn't say that it wasn't for me exactly.... its a bit more complicated and less absolute than that. Its hard to explain in just one post. There was a lot of hypocrisy and contradiction in the congregations I attended with over the years. What's more, the ruling on how to become baptized was not directly biblical but more of an interpretation of what the standards are for one to be baptized. Very strict standards, according to JWs, and these standards are, again, an interpretation, based on Jesus' principles. I can appreciate that these are opinions that work in some's lives. However, it did not and does not work in mine, as far as baptism. The dogmatic nature of their teachings bothers me a lot. It is rhetoric that is fed over and over, the same push toward what JWs teach as their version of God's truth. Again, I know this version works for some people. I really can appreciate how people would see the world in such a way and feel the need and desire to adhere to this belief system, as it advertises a strict moral compass and lifestyle which some may be attracted to. I am still in occasional contact with a few JWs as these particular people are genuine friends of mine and my husband's, and my children's. Its not necessarily b/c they are JWs, its that these particular people are sincere and loving people. I go to a nondenominational church which I really love. Its become a very safe and loving place to come to worship freely and fully and sing and rest my burdens and pray to God in heaven. They are also very good to my children and have many daytime and evening discussions, group studies, and events for families, kids, couples, singles, and anyone of all ages who wants to join in. Its a great place. Not huge, but a really great place. Its been a huge blessing to me to have this place to go at the end of each week...

I understand. Do what you feel is best for you.

==========

If you don't mind me suggesting.

Right now. You guys should just focus on stability, balance and peace for your family's sake.

Everything else will come together once you have that.

Please be careful of the people who you might correspond with from this board. Many pretend to be your friend. However, they want to see you seperate from Topsy. They do not mean well for you. They will gather info and eventually spread it all around the board in due time.

There is NO dignity in that.

Let the private decision's of both of you, be just that. PRIVATE!

That's a beautiful song, TBH.

My favorite version is by Jeff Buckley :

I also think the Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris duet for the "Hope for Haiti" special was a good version :

YOU go f*ck yourself and then do us all a favor and kill yourself afterwards.

You're a loser and a troll who has no place here. All you do is stir crap up just for the sake of it.

Go get lost in traffic!
