Hallelujah (Easter Edition)

Hallelujah (Easter version)
Tune: Leonard Cohen
Lyrics: Mike Ainsworth with minor edits by JD Longmire

V1:

C                   Am
I heard about a baby born
C                         Am
Into a world that sin had torn
             F                           G                         C          G
You’d wouldn't think He'd do too much to save ya
             C                             F           G
But His Father planned and made a way
      Am                               F
He knew that there would come a day
G                                     Em              Am
When all the world would need a hallelujah

F                   Am           F                C  G  C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

V2:

C                                 Am
I’ve heard about what Scriptures frame,
C                       Am
He grew into a man and came
     F                           G                  C          G
To bring the hope of Living Waters to ya
      C                                     F           G
He brought good news, the people came
         Am                   F
The leaders all just turned away
      G                        Em           Am
But others followed crying Hallelujah!

F                   Am           F                C  G  C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

V3

C                            Am
When they saw all He had done,
         C                        Am
The leaders knew the time had come
     F                       G                         C          G
To make a plan to stop the One sent to ya
     C                              F         G
He knew that He’d give everything
         Am                   F
They knew that must kill the King
       G                   Em           Am
And put an end to all those Hallelujahs

F                   Am           F                C  G  C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah


V4 :

C                                           Am
They thought that they had brought Him down
                   C                               Am
When they made Him wear their thorny crown
       F                           G                          C          G
And hung Him on the Cross - a message to ya
      C                                 F             G
But two days passed, the third one came
         Am               F
And Jesus Christ arose again
       G                   Em           Am
Now all of us are singing Hallelujah!

F                   Am           F                C  G  C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
(Rising)
F                   Am           F                C  G  C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
