Hallelujah! A Christmas Song - Song History

Words & Music

Dennis Jernigan

November 6, 2017

I absolutely love Christmas, yet I absolutely find it disheartening that the enemy has co-opted the meaning of Christmas as far away from reality as possible. As I was meditating on the real and true meaning of Christmas in early November of 2017, I began to thank God for the gifts given at the birth of Jesus. The gift of eternal life.The gift of resurrection power. The gift of intimacy with God through Emmanuel! As I pondered such things I could not help but begin to sing the word 'Hallelujah!' which means 'Praise the Lord!' Even though this word tends to lose its meaning if not focused on God and the reality of Jesus Christ, I chose to think about the meaning of the word and began to thank God for all He went through to purchase me and make me His own, beginning with the Gift of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Who began His life in a stable. Jesus humbled Himself from the beginning on our behalf. Let us humble ourselves and worship Him for Who He is and for what that means to our very existence. May the Word €˜Hallelujah!" become more than an empty four syllable word used to fill musical space. May His praises rise up like gifts back to Him for His great sacrifice for us. Merry Christmas!

Then I heard somethinglike the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns."

Revelation 19:6 NASB

Verse

Born but to suffer

Born but to die

Born but to sacrifice

Lay down Your life

Born in a stable

Cradled in the hay

Nailed to an old rugged cross

Gave Your life away

Chorus

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Verse

Born fully God

Born fully man

Tempted as I would be

You understand

Born for the cross

To bear sin away

Saved that which was lost

When You rose from the grave

Chorus

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Chorus

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
