Cold and Broken Hallelujahs

I was listening to the Strombo Show on CBC Radio on my drive back to the city, and Jeff Buckley's cover of 'Hallelujah' was the final track.  It was a pretty drive, with a large, orange moon on the rise in the east staring at me like Emerson's 'transparent eyeball.'  I love the drive.  I hate the destination.

Something strikes me about the word, "hallelujah" .. it is so profound, so distinct, and so full of meaning ... ahhh! Nothing sounds quite like it.

There's a song by Michael Gungor Band called 'Ancient Skies' that says:

"Now we stand amazed, and now we sing the word they sang in ancient days - a single word that’s overflowing endless praise - Hallelujah."

Gives me the tinglies!! Sorry for diverging down a bunny trail :) Lovely post, thanks for opening my mind.
