Easter Version of “Hallelujah”

Standard

Kelley Mooney’s approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

Be Blessed on this Resurrection Day!!

4-20-14 Easter 024

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

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

The soldier who had used his sword
To pierce the body of our Lord
Said truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior
He looked with fear upon his sword
Then turned to face his Christ and Lord
Fell to his knees crying 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

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!

Amen!

The Reason I Haven’t Been Blogging…

Standard
The name
And the life situations
Have been changed to protect the innocent!
ME
But, really this has been my life
So-to-speak for months now!
 
I am driving
I am late for work
Spilling coffee down my whitest shirt
While I’m flossing and I’m changing lanes
Oh YeahNow I’m driving
Through the parking lot
Doing eighty, hey what the heck why not
Watch it lady, Cuz you’re in my spot
Once again, It’s early to work
And here’s a surprise, I got a
McMuffin for just 99 cents today
I think they ran a special[CHORUS:]
I can’t stand still Can I get a witness
Can you hear me Anybody, Anybody
I think I am running just to catch myselfMaybe someday I could fly away
Go to Key Largo or Montego Bay
Sport my Speedo, maybe grab a tan
DREAM VACATION, WILD ELATION
Now I’m running
Straight into my boss
And he’s angry, Oh and he calls me Ross
Which is funny, cause that ain’t my nameAnd that’s lame
I’m still running
Running very late, For a meeting
Wait, that was yesterday
Guess I’m early for the one next week, Oh how sweet
I get on the ladder, I corporately climb
I wave at my life as it passes me by everyday
My name’s not Ross!

[CHORUS]

Life in my cubicle is discreet, Life in my cubicle is neat
I’ve got some pictures of my friends
Some sharpened pencils…where’s my pen
Ten O’clock I’m in a meeting
Paper cut I think I’m bleeding
Check my hair it’s still receding, Hey what a life
Break for lunch, there’s nothing better
Run outside and don my sweater
Like Fred Rogers let’s be neighbors
I’ve lost my mind
I’m over worked, and underpaid, and non appreciated

It’s just a perk of being of being middle class and educated
One… spinning circles in my chair
Two…win a game of solitaire
Three… And I ponder where my stapler’s gone
Four O’clock and I stare at the door,
And I stare at my watch, Then I stare at the door
I stand by my desk like I’m going to war
There’s just one thing I’ll be needing
Grab my paycheck as I’m leaving
Oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhhhh
Five O’clock it’s time to go
There’s crowds to fight and time to blow
It’s talking fast on my cell phone
Hey, watch out that’s reckless driving!
Five O’clock

It’s time to hit the couch and watch TV
Set the clock and go to sleep
It’s 8 a.m. on Monday morning
Again and again and again and again and again
Driving around, no where to go
And so I hang with my lady,
Oh, and chill with my bros
It’s okay, in my Cabriolet

[CHORUS]

When I meet God, I will have a question
I just forgot the question
I think I am running just to catch myself
Oh oh oh
Oh oh o

I am driving

I am late for work

Spilling coffee

Down my whitest shirt

While I’m flossing

And I’m changing lanes

Oh, Yeah

Now I’m driving

Through the parking lot

Doing eighty

Hey, what the heck, why not

Watch it lady

‘Cause you’re in my spot

Once again

And here’s a surprise

I got a McMuffin for just 99 cents today

I think they ran a special

I can’t stand still

Can I get a witness

Can you hear me

Anybody, anybody

I think I am running just to catch myself

Maybe someday I could fly away

Go to Key Largo or Montego Bay

Sport my speedo, maybe grab a tan

A dream vacation, wild elation

Now I’m running

Straight into my boss

And he’s angry

Oh, and he calls me Ross

‘Cause that ain’t my name

Whew!!!!

I’m exhausted!!

Thank you, Lord for this weekend to relax and recover!!

Amen!

I Know My Redeemer Lives…I Spoke With Him This Morning!!

Standard

Psalm 19:14

“May these words of my mouth

and this meditation of my heart   

be pleasing in Your sight,   

Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 027

Jesus,

You are my Redeemer

You have paid the price

You have delivered us from bondage

You have set things right!

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?

And who told the ocean you can only come this far?

And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?

Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well, I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

All of creation testifies

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 068

This life within me cries

I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God

That spins things in orbit

Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak

And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken

They conquered death to bring me victory

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 071

Now I know, my Redeemer lives

He lives

To take away my shame

And He lives

Forever I’ll proclaim

That the payment for my sins

Was the precious life He gave

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 096

And now He’s alive and

There’s an empty grave!

I know, that I know, that I know, that I know, that I know

He lives

My Redeemer lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 114

He lives

I know, I know

He lives 

I spoke with Him this morning!

He lives

The tomb is empty

He Lives!

I’m going to tell everybody!!

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 169

Job 38

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said…

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?  

…Who shut up the sea behind doors…when I said,

‘This far you may come and no farther”…

    …Have you ever given orders to the morning,

or shown the dawn its place,

…Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea  

or walked in the recesses of the deep?

…Have the gates of death been shown to you?

Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?   

Tell me, if you know all this.

  …Can you raise your voice to the clouds

    and cover yourself with a flood of water?

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?   

Do they report to you,

‘Here we are’?

Who provides food for the raven   

when its young cry out to God   

and wander about for lack of food?”

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 210

Job 19:25

“I know that my Redeemer lives,   

and that in the end He will stand on the earth.”
