Hallelujah’s rise up

From her new album "One True Vine," Mavis Staples, singing "Far Celestial Shore":


Way beyond the surly bonds of earth and hate and war
On a far celestial shore
There’s a land of plenty where no child shall want for more
On a far celestial shore
Hallelujah’s rise up from a whisper to a roar
On a far celestial shore
