Hallelujah

“Hallelujah”

A crown of thorns upon 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.

Refrain:  Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

He hung His head and prepared to die, then lifted His face up to the sky.

He 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.

Refrain

 

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

Said “truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior.”

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

Fell to his knees crying Hallelujah!

Refrain

 

Took from his head the thorny crown, and wrapped him in a linen gown,

Laid him down to rest inside the tomb.

Holes in his hands, in his feet and side now in our hearts we know he died

To save us from ourselves.

Refrain

 

Three days went by again they came, to move the stone to bless the slain,

With oil and spice anointing hallelujah.

But when they came to move the stone they saw they were not alone

Christ the King has risen Hallelujah!

Refrain
