Many people would love to know with confidence God loves them. Sadly, many do not. On the other side of the coin – there are folks who would cherish knowing that God receives the love they send in prayer. Singing HU answers both these prayers of the heart.
About twenty years ago HU was first shared with me by my teacher Del, a God ordained Prophet. I was stunned. Here was a simple, direct way to sing my love to God in a very real and pure way. It was a revelation to me. Not only was God alive, but He loved me. And now I could express my love to Him and He could hear it. It had been a dream of mine my entire life to be able to just once tell God directly that I loved Him. This was a prayer come true.
The HU is something I now sing daily. Whether at home, or in the car to and from work, quietly or out loud, it has grown into an integral way of communicating with and nurturing my personal relationship with the Divine. There is also something special about singing HU with a group of people and something different about singing it at the Nature Awareness School. Here is an experience I had singing HU at the Nature Awareness School.
I am sitting in a room of about fifty people. We sing HU, a love song to God. It’s a collage of sound that soon builds in strength and depth and intent with every wave. The harmonies are absolutely blissful. At times the angelic voices around me seem to number in the thousands. At other moments it feels very small and intimate, like it is just God and us. The love is so overwhelming; I do not want to stop. How beautiful it is to hear.
After a while longer, we stop singing, but it does not feel like it has ended. The HU still reverberates. In my heart, I know I am heard. I know I am loved. Thank HU.

A special friend of mine taught me about HU too. I’ve sang it a few times but I’ve never been sure I’m doing it right. I’ve never really sang a direct song to God so I didn’t want it to be wrong. Do you hold the sound for a long time or short? Do you put it to the tune of another song? I just guessed. My goal is to remember to do this more often because I live in the same world most of you do – busy busy busy. I forget a lot of things but I usually talk to God at night, sometimes while I’m driving. Anyway, thanks for the post!
Cindy – The HU is sung in a long drawn out breath…huuuuuu. It sounds like “hue”, as in a color or hue. It can be sung quietly or out loud. Take a moment before singing it and think of something you are grateful for. This helps to open your heart which really makes a difference when sending love to God – which is what the HU is. A pure love song or prayer to God available to all regardless of which religion, if any, you follow. The HU is a key into the kingdom of Heaven.
We are hosting a free HU sing next week in Waynesboro, Virginia if you are interested. It is always amazing to experience the HU in a large group. Here is a link to the details of this event.
