Glory Hallelujah

This song is by Frank Turner and appears on the album England Keep My Bones (2011).

Brothers and sisters
Have you heard the news?
The storm has lifted
There is nothing to lose
So swap your confirmation
For your dancing shoes
Because there never was no God

Step out of the darkness
And onto the streets
Forget about the fast
Let's have a carnival feast
Raise up your lowered head
And hear the liberation beat
Because there never was no God

And there is no God
So clap your hands together
There is no God
No heaven and no hell
And there is no God
We're all in this together
There is no God
So ring that victory bell

No cowering in the dark
Before some overbearing priest
No waiting until we die
Until we restitute the meek
No blaming all our failings
On imaginary beasts
Because there never was no God

No fighting over land
Your distant fathers told you of
No spilling blood for those
Who've never spread a drop of love
No finger pointing justified
By phantoms up above
Because there never was no God

There is no God
So clap your hands together
There is no God
No heaven and no hell
There is no God
We're all in this together
There is no God
So ring that victory bell

And I know you're scared of dying, man
And I am too
But just pretending it's not happening
Isn't gonna see us through
If we accept that there's an end game
And we haven't got much time
Then in the here and now
That we can try and do things right

We'd be our own salvation army
And together we believe
In all the wondrous things
That mere mortals can achieve

Well I've known beauty in the stillness
Of cathedrals in the day
I've sung Glory Hallelujah!
Won't you wash my sins away?
But now I'm singing my refrain
And this is what I say
I say there never was no God

There is no God
So clap your hands together
There is no God
No heaven and no hell
There is no God
We're all in this together
There is no God
So ring that victory bell

(One more time!)
There is no God
So clap your hands together
There is no God
No heaven and no hell
There is no God
We're all in this together
There is no God
So ring that victory bell
