I have taken the liberty of creating my own lyrics, in honour of our Saviours birth. This is me and some of Christ the King, Edmonton's musicians at our Christmas Eve service.
I hope you will forgive the quality of the recording. We hope to make a better one at some point.
See what you think.
Here are the lyrics:
HALLELUJAH (CHRISTMAS CAROL)
I heard there was a baby boy, was born this day to bring us joySalvation and the Holy Spirit to you
In Bethlehem this baby lay In a manger filled with hay
While angels sang a glorious Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
The shepherds came and saw that night, you, Jesus, of the world, the lightThe Saviour of all who give their hearts to You
They left their fields, they came and saw the One who would fulfil the law
You, only worthy of our Hallelujah
And wise men travelled from afar, with gold and frankincense and myrrhPresented gifts and bowed in worship to You
And so to this day all who love the God who came down from above
Can join together in the Hallelujah
And so Jesus, all praise to you. All glory, power and honour tooFor salvation that can only come through You
We thank you for your humble birth that brought new hope to all the earth
We sing out, all together, “Hallelujah!”
So on this day we celebrate, and You will come again some dayTo earth to raise up all your children to You
And every knee will bow before our Saviour and our risen Lord
And every tongue will sing out “Hallelujah!”
