“Hallelujah!” New Version

The first verse is almost the same to the Cohen version but for this:

The faithful king composing Hallelujah!


I’ll do my best, though it’s not much

I’ll sing my songs and try to touch

I speak the truth: I didn’t come to fool ya

And even if men think me wrong

I’ll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! …


I know there is a God above

He taught me all I know of love

To pray for that somebody who’s misused ya

Love hears me when I cry at night

Christ broke my darkness with His Light!

So hear my heart, my grateful HalleluYAH!

Hallelujah! …


There was a time Christ let me know

Why He stepped down to this earth below

But do you really want to know, now do ya?

Lay down your sin and turn to Him

The holy dove will draw you in

And every breath will then be Hallelujah!
