Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! I've accepted an offer and start Tuesday at a new contract job. I can't tell you how much this means to me, so I'll let Leonard Cohen say it.



BTW. Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, and KD Lang do nice renditions of this song, and there's Lots of others, too. Nice song, Mr. Cohen, thank you.

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Wow! That was great to hear!!

Congratulations Charles!

I am so happy for you. Keep the Faith, In God & equally importantly in yourself!

And here is a Quote:

In the Name of God Most Gracious most Merciful :

( Thus said the Holy One)
Have We not expanded thee thy breast?
And removed from thee thy burden
The which did gall thy back?
And raised high the esteem (in which) thou art held?

So Verily with difficulty there is relief:
Verily WITH every difficulty there is relief!

Therefore when thou art free from thine immediate task, STILL labor hard
And to Thy Lord turn thy attention.
