Hallelujah – Christmas Version

Thought I would post this tune I put together for our Christmas season worship. We love the song my friend Geoff Fawcett wrote years ago, “Hallelujah.” This is his song mixed with a bit of “Carol of the Bells” (including the 6/8 beat) and lyrics taken from “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” The church loved it, caught on right away, and really sang out.

I love the lyrics from the first verse of Geoff’s song: “Lord we sing your praises loud / sing them to the stumbling crowd / sing of Jesus and His word / sing until the earth has heard.” Great words to meditate on this time of year!

Here is the demo version I put together for our worship team:
Hallelujah – Christmas Version

HALLELUJAH (Christmas version)

Lord, we sing your praises loud,
Sing them to the stumbling crowd,
Sing of Jesus and His word,
Sing until the earth has heard.

Hallelujah (repeating)

Hark the herald angels sing
β€œGlory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild;
God and sinners reconciled.”

Hallelujah (repeating)

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th’ Incarnate Deity
Pleased as Man with men to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel!

Hallelujah (repeating)

Mild, He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.

Hallelujah (repeating, three choruses)

Lord, we sing your praises loud,
Sing them to the stumbling crowd,
Sing of Jesus and His word,
Sing until the earth has heard.
