Hallelujah...

A crown of thorns placed on his head…He knew that he would soon be dead...

He said ‘did you forget me, Father…did you?

They nailed him to a wooden cross…soon all the world would feel the loss

of Christ the King before us...; Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

He hung his head and prepared to die...then lifted his face up to the sky…

Said – ‘I am coming home now Father to you’

A reed which held His final sip…Was gently lifted to His lips…

He drank His last and gave His soul to glory…; Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

The soldier who had used his sword…to pierce the body of our Lord…

Said – ‘truly this was Jesus Christ...our Saviour!’

He looked with fear upon his sword...then turned to face his Christ and Lord…

Fell to his knees...crying - Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

They took from His head the thorny crown…and wrapped him in a linen gown…

And laid Him down to rest inside the tomb…;

The holes in His hands, His feet and side....now in our hearts we know He died…

To save us from ourselves…oh hallelujah; Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

Three days went by…again they came...to move the stone…

to bless the slain…with oils and spices anointing…; Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

But as they went to move the stone…they saw that they were not alone…

Jesus Christ has risen – hallelujah; Hallelujah…Hallelujah.... Hallelujah... Hallelujah...

[you know the familiar tune - by Leonard Cohen; Christian lyrics by Kelly Mooney]
