There is a version of this song going round Facebook at the moment with revised words praising the birth of Christ. I had the pleasure of hearing this sung with guitar accompaniment yesterday, and although I do not have the revised words I thought I would have another try at singing this song.
I now have the revised Christmas words:
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 you were coming soon There was no room for them to stay So in a manger filled with hay God’s only son was born, oh HallelujahHallelujah, 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 said You’ll find him in a manger bed And there you’ll meet your Saviour, HallelujahHallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah
A star shone 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”
Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah

Happy Thursday and Merry Christmas my friend !!
Love your take on this, Julz. Very powerful!
I must listen out for the changed words on FB....I wonder what Leonard Cohen would think of that, I think he'd really be confused!! LOL
It's such a beautiful song. Leonard Cohen actually wrote 85 verses before he finished it... it's not really a religious song... but it's almost spiritual in the way it effects those who listen to it...
This is one of the most powerful version on SingSnap... such a spectacular performance... I love it when people really take a song and make it their 'own.' You do that in spades... Very creative and original... this is a totally AWESOME version. Wow!
Loving my listen on a 'chilly' evening in Music City, Nashville...
WOW…………..positively outstanding!!!I love the revised words praising the birth of Christ…………BEAUTIFUL.Many thanks for sharing your awesome sing.Hugs & Blessings,Terrie xo
