I’ll stand before my Lord of Song

Most people know the hauntingly beautiful song “Hallelujah” written by Leonard Cohen. There have been many renditions, and many expositions of it including himself. He wrote various verses, and when he performed, he sang different sets of lyrics. But I digress. I keep coming back to the last verse:

I did my best, it wasn’t much

I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch

I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you

And even though it all went wrong

I’ll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

To me, that touches on a journey of trying, trials, disappointment, disaster, but confidence in the end that the Lord is worthy of praise. Even though the world is falling down around you, He is still trustworthy. Amen.
