An Easter Hallelujah

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
