Listen to "Hallelujah"

November 12, 2010 — You may remember KD Lang's moving presentation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" during the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Well, in 2006 a young lady from Prince Edward Island adapted the lyrics to reflect the Easter Story and Jesus' journey to the cross. She recently received "mechanical rights" to the song so she could record it.

Below is the World Video Premiere of Kelley Mooney's spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". Enjoy!!!

 

 

 

UPDATE: March 30, 2021

Professional sound recording by Kelley Mooney with illustrations (released April 1, 2015)

 

Beautiful Duet with Lyrics (released March 21, 2021)
Cassandra Star Armstrong & her big sister Callahan sing this beautiful & meaningful Easter version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. These Easter lyrics were written by Kelley Mooney, the piano track was arranged by Jeff Buckley of Karaoke Studios & the recording by Maverick Judson of MJ Interactive.   The sisters recorded this song for their Nana... it is their Nana's favourite song.

 

 

Lyrics:

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 is Jesus Christ our Saviour
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
And 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
But Jesus Christ has risen Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
