With this wonderful duet of Easter ‘Hallelujah,’ two sisters tell us of the true reason for the holiday.
Kelley Mooney wrote this stunning song after she was invited to sing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at church one Sunday.
Kelley noticed that the original lyrics did not correspond to the Easter story at all after closer examination of the song.
She decided that singing those words would be inappropriate, so she came up with the brilliant idea of rewriting the song to relate the true tale of Easter.
This magnificent song now talks of our Lord and Savior’s Resurrection.
‘A crown of thorns was placed on His head, and He knew He would die shortly, so He asked, ‘Did you forget me, Father?’
Cassandra Star and Callahan, sisters, are performing this Easter hymn today, and it’s just wonderful.
The kids offered this performance to their granny, who ‘needs extra love & prayers right now…. this is her favorite song,’ according to YouTube.
What a lovely reminder of Easter’s true significance. Is there anyone else saying amen?
‘They nailed Him to a wooden cross, and soon the entire world will mourn the death of Christ the King before His Hallelujah.’
John 11:25-26 ‘I am the resurrection and the life,’ Jesus told her. Those who believe in me will live even if they die, and those who live and believe in me will never die. ‘Do you believe this?’
