New Lyrics for Hallelujah

During our Sunday morning church service, the music minister played his guitar and sang Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah".  However, the lyrics Gale sang were different.  They were written by George Stroh, the pastor of Maranatha Bible Church in Peoria, Arizona.

I searched online for the music without singing and found this video on YouTube.  The lyrics that Pastor George wrote can be viewed below.  The song was written to those who have been praying for loved ones.



George Stroh's lyrics to the tune of Hallelujah:

Well I heard about a Savior who has come to die for me and you.
But you don't really care about Him, do ya?
They say He is the promised one, the truth, the life, God's first born son,
the King who always hears the Hallelujah!

Chorus: Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well you  need to hear that God's the one who loves you so and sent His Son.
But you still don't believe in Him, do ya?
He's paid the price we couldn't pay, He's risen, alive, will come someday,
the King who always hears the Hallelujah!

Repeat Chorus

Well it's time for you to trust in Him, the one who can forgive your sin.
It's not too late to change your mind, but will ya?
You must repent, receive His love, accept the gift from God above,
And join the choir that sings the Hallelujah!

Repeat Chorus

Well I pray someday you'll come to Him, this Savior who has died for sin.
then you will truly be a Christian, won't ya?
Your life will change, sin satisfied, your heart renewed, your glorified,
And then you'll sing with us the Hallelujah.

Repeat Chorus

Blessings and love,

  1. Dear Debbie,
    Thanks for giving me a great time in front of my lap top; singing along to one of the finest tunes ever made.
    William Booth ones said, "Why should the Devil have all the good tunes?"
    Not that I think Leonard Cohen represent anything evil, and his"Hallelujah" is a favorite love song of mine.
    Nevertheless this gave me something more valuable.
    Thanks again for sharing.
