Better Than a Hallelujah by Chapin Hartford and Sarah Hart. Arranged by Nate Gustafson. Choir Sacred. 3-Part Mixed Choir (SAB). Choral (Sacred); Choral Octavo; Worship Resources. Sing Praise. Sacred. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.36998).
Amy Grant has been known to blur the lines between "sacred" and "secular." In this choral arrangement of a moving song from her album "Somewhere Down The Road," she sings about how God, in His infinite wisdom and mercy, ignores the man-made lines altogether. Heart-felt honesty is better than "hallelujah" sometimes. True repentance peals louder than church bells. Alternate lyrics help make this anthem appropriate for ensembles or high school/college age groups. Related Scripture: Psalm 39:12; John 7:53-8:11; Luke 15:11-32
Inst. Parts Available (choral); Recorded Acc. Available.
