Heather Williams, “Hallelujah”

Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Heather Williams is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen. I learned of her after seeing that her new single, Hallelujah (INO Records) is one of the five most-added tracks at Soft AC/Inspo radio this week, so I decided to check out YouTube to see what she was about, and my goodness, you all have to watch her tell her story.

I can’t even begin to explain to you how Hallelujah‘s power to affect one’s soul can be so strong. It’s a stirring prayer, a song, a plea, a desperate cry out to Jesus to do His work in us, weaved into such a moving, powerful tapestry of music and emotion that I couldn’t stop the tears from coming. “This is my prayer!” I whispered to myself as I listened to the song’s soaring crescendo, I was flushed, short of breath, and… just, wow. Heather wrote this after the death of her infant son – I shed buckets of tears listening to the story – and she was just in this place of brokenness that I think every Christian is bound to experience. You don’t have to experience the loss of a child to be in that place, and I think that songs like Heather Williams’ Hallelujah just have such power to speak for us when we cannot come up with the words ourselves.

There’s a video on Heather’s Facebook of her performing Hallelujah live, but I’m streaming the INO Records video underneath so you can watch how they’ve crafted a video that, IMHO, represents pretty much how our lives before Christ are kinda like houses – empty, vacant, waiting to be filled with His love and all the confidence, blessings, and life-changing things that come when Christ comes into our lives. Guys, believe me, I’ve recommended some songs before out of sheer lack of anything else viable, but I am wholeheartedly recommending you download Heather Williams’ Hallelujah and use it for your devotion time, your prayer time, maybe even in church, if the Spirit so leads. Heather Williams, you’ve crafted a masterpiece, and the Christian world needs to hear your song.

HALLELUJAH Lyrics
Heather Williams

Jesus, please come
Please come today
Hear me
Heal me
Be near me I pray

I have fallen so far
Flat on my face
I’m in need of Your grace today
I stumble and fall
But in spite of it all
Your love always stays the same
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Jesus, please come
Please come today
Break me
Mold me
Use me I pray

But don’t give up on me now
I’m so close to You now
I’m in need of Your grace today
wipe the dirt off my face
hold me in Your embrace
Your love always saves the day
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I have fallen so far
flat on my face
I’m in need of Your grace today
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Amen

On my knees here I fall
in spite of it all
Hallelujah
And though it seems hard
I’m still trusting You Lord
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
