"Hallelujah Anyway" by Rend Collective



Rend Collective is a prolific worship music team from Northern Ireland. They recently released a new album, Whosoever, and I'm particularly taken by its upbeat Celtic folk/pop song "Hallelujah Anyway". It'd work well for an offertory or even a corporately-sung song. Lyrics below.


I'll find a way to praise You

From the bottom of my broken heart

'Cause I think I'd rather strike a match than curse the dark

Yeah, I'll find a way to thank You

Though the bitterness is real and hard

'Cause I'd rather take a chance on hope than fall apart

I don't think I'm ready to surrender to the dark, no


Even if my daylight never dawns

Even if my breakthrough never comes

Even if I'll fight to bring You praise

Even if my dreams fall to the ground

Even if I'm lost, I know I'm found

Even if my heart will somehow say

Hallelujah anyway


Yeah, I hear a hymn of triumph

In the wilderness of my lament

In the lowlands or the mountain tops, I won't forget

All that goodness that You have shown me

The promises that You have kept

There's better days on the horizon up ahead


All c'mon, now

Let it rise

Let it rise

In the dark or the wild

Oh, my soul stands by

If you got a soul then sing let it rise
