Songtekst

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 your were coming soon 
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God 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 
You'll find him in a manger bed
And there you'll meet your Savior Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A star shown 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
