These are the words I think of with this song - check out the version and words here. Equally beautiful!

The Lyrics were original about King David and his fall but has been re-written with Christmas lyrics to tell the Christmas story. Here they are: 've heard about this baby boy Who's come to earth to bring us joy And I just want to sing this song to you It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth The minor fall, the major lift With every breath I'm singing Hallelujah Hallelujah A couple came to Bethlehem Expecting child, they searched the inn To find a place for You were coming soon There was no room for them to stay So in a manger filled with hay God's only Son was born, oh Hallelujah Hallelujah The shepherds left their flocks by night To see this baby wrapped in light A host of angels led them all to You It was just as the angels said You'll find Him in a manger bed Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah Hallelujah A star shown bright up in the east To Bethlehem, the wisemen three Came many miles and journeyed long for You And to the place at which You were Their frankincense and gold and myrrh They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah Hallelujah I know You came to rescue me This baby boy would grow to be A man and one day die for me and you My sins would drive the nails in You That rugged cross was my cross, too Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah Hallelujah

The original song has been rewritten into a beautiful and popular Christmas song.

Nice rendition, but does anyone else think it an odd choice? When you know the lyrics, you realize it's not about Christmas, but about a man who falls for the wrong women. Great melody, but a tad uncomfortable when you know the words.

Another beautiful song from Sister Sterling.
