Devotion #6

 

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 us, Hallelujah

Hallelujah      Hallelujah      Hallelujah      Hallelujah     

 

He hung he 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 then 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 – Turned to face his Christ and Lord

Fell to his knees, crying “Hallelujah”       

Hallelujah      Hallelujah      Hallelujah      Hallelujah

 

Took from His head the thorny crown – Wrapped Him in a linen gown

And laid Him down to rest inside the tomb

The holes in His hands, His feet, His 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
