“Hallelujah”

Another gorgeous rendition of Cohen’s classic…..

A friend sent this video to me. I made the mistake of viewing it while in my “local saloon” (Starbucks). By the final verse I was weeping heavily – in large part, because, due to my son’s death last May, my appreciation for Christ’s cross & resurrection has gone deeper still.

NOTE: The soloist is Catholic (made evident in her introduction) so her doctrine differs from evangelical Christianity in regard to who “mediates between God and men.” Catholicism still holds to the Old Testament office of the priest, while New Testament Christianity holds to Paul’s instruction to Timothy that there is “one mediator between God and men, the Man Jesus Christ.” (1 Timothy 2:5)

That said, this precious woman re-wrote Cohen’s hauntingly beautiful “Hallelujah” for Easter. This youtube clip now has over a million hits. The lyrics are biblically sound, her voice is absolutely beautiful, and the Children’s Choir that backs her up is the “icing the on cake.”

Enjoy, my friends! He is risen! And that changes everything. Hallelujah!
