The lyrics are below:

“Hallelujah”  adapted by Kelly Mooney

Stations-6-crucify-7A 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 x4


Stations-10-forgive-7He 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 x4

Stations-11-remember-7The 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 x4


Stations-14-tomb-7Took 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 x4


Welcome HomeThree 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 x4

Hallelujah x4
