Hallelujah Medley

 click, click, went the camera shutter in an attempt to capture earth's hallelujah song...

All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name."

Hallelujah sings dusk’s heaven
Hallelujah, laughs the lad
Splashing through blue sky beneath him
Hallelujah, grins his dad

Hallelujah, cheeps the sparrow
Hallelujah sweeps yon mead
Where the color-schemes of vesper
Run askew in pink-gold-red

Hallelujah, shouts the hour
Green with possibility
Hallelujah, prays the mother
…God holds what she cannot see

Hallelujah, raves the river
Rushing yet not running dry
Hallelujah, sighs the lover
Reaching for a dream-dazed sky

Hallelujah, beams the flower
Hallelujah streams the sun
Strumming springtime’s slumbr’ing bower
With hope’s hallelujah-song

Hallelujah, cheers the morning
Hallelujah rings through trees
Hallelujah joins the heart who
Knows that God arranges these
