There is a version of this song going round Facebook at the moment with revised words praising the birth of Christ. I had the pleasure of hearing this sung with guitar accompaniment yesterday, and although I do not have the revised words I thought I would have another try at singing this song.


I now have the revised Christmas words:

I heard about this baby boy
Who comes to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing of this song to you
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath I’m singing, “Hallelujah”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for you were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God’s only son was born, oh Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to you
It was just as the angels said
You’ll find him in a manger bed
And there you’ll meet your Saviour, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A star shone bright out in the east
To Bethlehem, the wise-man three
Came many miles a journey long for you
Into the place at which you were
Their frankincense, gold, and myrrh
They came to you and cried out, “Hallelujah”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I know you came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man who’d one day die for me and you
Our sins will drive the nails in you
That rugged cross, was my cross, too
And every breath you drew was “Hallelujah”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I'm only on BETA occasionally when I can afford the time to sync. Priority is my latest book.

Love your take on this, Julz. Very powerful!

I must listen out for the changed words on FB....I wonder what Leonard Cohen would think of that, I think he'd really be confused!! LOL

Best always,

It's such a beautiful song. Leonard Cohen actually wrote 85 verses before he finished it... it's not really a religious song... but it's almost spiritual in the way it effects those who listen to it...

This is one of the most powerful version on SingSnap... such a spectacular performance... I love it when people really take a song and make it their 'own.' You do that in spades... Very creative and original... this is a totally AWESOME version. Wow!

Loving my listen on a 'chilly' evening in Music City, Nashville...
