SONG STORY

Sing hallelujah on the mountain top, and sing hallelujah in the valley. God is always there.

 

TOM WRITES:

This song is inspired by an old puritan prayer called The Valley Of Vision. One of the great paradoxes of faith is how God meets us in the unlikeliest of places. It’s easy to think that in our valley moments, somehow God is unable to reach us, or that He is waiting for us to get it all together before he can meet us. But I love how this prayer speaks the truth: 'The deeper the wells, the brighter Your stars shine; let me find Your light in my darkness, Your life in my death, Your joy in my sorrow, Your grace in my sin, Your riches in my poverty, Your glory in my valley.’ 


Sing hallelujah on the mountain top, and sing hallelujah in the valley. God is always there.
