08. Hallelujah [Your Love Is Amazing]

Everlasting God
by Brenton Brown



 

Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging
Your love is a mountain firm beneath my feet
Your love is a mystery, how you gently lift me
When I am surrounded your love carries me
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
your love makes me sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
your love makes me sing
Your love is surprising, I can feel it rising
All the joy that's growing deep inside of me
Every time I see you all your goodness shines through
And I can feel this God song rising up in me

Brenton Brown/Brian Doerksen / 2000 Mercy/Vineyard Songs / ccli # 3091812

Behind the Song:
"The first verse of this song was written in the afterglow of an amazing Sunday morning service. For me, church on Sunday in a foreign country, wasn't just an enjoyable duty. It really was a lifeline. Meeting with God and His saint's was my solid ground when everything around me had changed and was changing. I guess that sense of God's constancy is there in this verse - 'your love is a mountain, firm beneath my feet'. Although I loved the verse very much I just couldn't find a chorus for it. So when I went to hang out with Brian and Joyce Doerksen in Canada this was one of the tunes I'd brought along with me. My life and Brian's life at that stage couldn't have been more different. He'd been married for more than a decade, was a father of 5 living in his family home in his home country. I was single, living in digs in a foreign land. But Brian and Joyce had lived in London for a couple of years while I was in Oxford and they'd become one of a few families I'd adopted as my own. They are an amazing couple and family and took me in like one of their own. I will always be grateful for the love they showed to me. Brian was the worship pastor for vineyard churches UK while I was learning the ropes in the Vineyard and it's always felt like he was the big brother and I was his cheeky younger brother. Anyway. The differences in our lives couldn't have been more pronounced when we finished writing this song. Brian was in his living room draped in kids and carnage and I was quietly but determinedly going through my list of unfinished songs. When we got to this one, one of his eyes looked in my direction. He asked me to play it again and then said 'I think it's time we sang Hallelujah again. It was a neat contrast to the vibe of the verse. It took us about 30 minutes to finish the chorus and the second verse." - Brenton Brown
