A friend shared this amazing video on Facebook a few days ago, and I knew then, I just had to share it with you this Easter.
Now in our hearts we know he died To save us from ourselves, oh Hallelujah
For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. And this great love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.John 15:13 (The Passion Translation)
This is one of those days, when I feel I need to add no more to this post, other than share this video and lyrics. I pray you are blessed as you listen to Cassandra Star (10) and her older sister Callahan (19) sing a beautiful and meaningful Easter version of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.
A crown of thorns placed on 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 His Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah He hung His head and prepared to die Then lifted His face up to the sky 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 Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah The soldier who had used his sword To pierce the body of our Lord Said, "Truly, this was 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 Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Took from his head the thorny crown And wrapped him in a linen gown Then laid him down to rest inside the tomb The holes in his hands, his feet and side Now in our hearts we know he died To save us from ourselves, oh Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Three days went by, again they came To move the stone, to bless the slain With oil and spice anointing Hallelujah But as they went to move the stone They saw that they were not alone For Jesus Christ has risen, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah
