A Hallelujah Christmas by Cloverton





I've heard about this baby boy
Who's come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath I'm singing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God's only Son was born, oh Hallelujah
Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You'll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A star shown bright up in the east
To Bethlehem, the wisemen three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah

  7. This is what the song should always have been (no reflection on Leonard Cohn) but this is so much better.

    1. Paul, this is such a beautiful song with such a great message of love. But, the Leonard Cohn song carried a different message...which I found to be as powerful as this one.
      Blessings to you and your family.

  24. What do you have to do to use someone else's song with new lyrics?

    ReplyDelete
  25. it would be good to wheel a piano into a shopping centre and have someone play sing this.
    What an inpact it would have.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I play in a mountain dulcimer/guitar group and we have the dulcimer arrangement for this song, which I love. We ordered and received our music from Tull Glazener. He does have a web site for dulcimer music.

  27. A friend sent me this song yesterday. It has moved me like no other song ever has. My life has been a mess. Unemployed for a long time. I am out of money, can't pay my bills and I haven't felt any joy with Christmas coming. This song has moved me. Maybe there is hope after all. Thank you Cloverton.

  29. The most hateful person in this hate filled world would be touched by those words. The song is beautiful as always, the lyric change took it to a whole new level. Brilliant!!

    1. Not everyone is touched by Christian thievery. It took the original and turned it on it's head with this vanilla, half baked effort.

      Delete
    2. How is it thievery when this rewrite was created and is performed with Leonard Cohen's full knowledge, consent and agreement? Get your facts straight before you make accusations from faceless anonymity

  30. You still can hear this song on the following link. Until someone takes it down,

    1. I LOVE this song as well! I have looked, but dont think you will find it to buy. From what I understand there are copyright issues with Sony (i think with the music) :( I found a video on Dailymotion with the lyrics and downloaded it to my computer. Then made a DVD to watch.. So I can watch on computer or TV.
