Christmas Hallelujah

Postby allangee on Thu Dec 30, 2010 12:19 am

Alternate lyrics for a "Christmas" Hallelujah. With all respect and admiration for Leonard Cohen's original of course.

The news brought forth on angel voice
Our Lord had made a virgin choice
A son to come before your husband knew ya.
A peasant king, a royal slave,
From heaven fell our world to save.
The holy choir whispers Hallelujah.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu----jah

On a night as black as our broken souls
A light was born to make us whole
A baby's tears were shed just to renew ya
The heavens were Your hallowed crown
With stars for jewels as one shone down
And Your mother started praying Hallelujah.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu----jah

As we sow so shall we weep
Amid our flock the shepherds sleep
As darkness cloaks the one who came to ya
But with blinding light the angel throng
Reveals the King in royal song
In harmony proclaiming Hallelujah.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu----jah

And then, as now, the very wise
Seek an answer in the skies
A star so bright it seems to shine right through ya.
And if, like they, we see the light
And follow to the holy site
We can share with them a Hallelujah.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu----jah

A Father's gift came from above
A Son pure born to die in love
What does the Christ in Christmas mean to ya?
Will you hide Him in the holidays
Or lift your voice and sing his praise
And share with all the world this Hallelujah.

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu--jah
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu---u---jah
