The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

Hallelujah

Hallelujah LyricsProduced by Leonard Cohen
Performed by Pentatonix
Released: 2016
 

Lyrics for Hallelujah:

 

[Verse 1: Scott]
I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

[Verse 2: Avi]
Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to the kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips, she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Verse 3: Kirstin]
Well baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a vict’ry march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Verse 4: Mitch]
Well, maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Outro]
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Released: 1984

 

Lyrics for 2000 Miles:

 

He’s gone
2000 miles
Is very far
The snow is falling down
It’s colder day by day
I miss you

The children were singing
He’ll be back at Christmas time

And these frozen and silent nights
Sometimes in a dream
You appear
Outside under the purple sky
Diamonds in the snow
Sparkle

Our hearts was singing
It felt like Christmas time

2000 miles
Is very far through the snow
I’ll think of you
Wherever you go

He’s gone
2000 miles
Is very far
The snow is falling down
It’s colder day by day
I miss you

I can hear people singing
It must be Christmas time

I hear people singing
It must be Christmas time

Performed by Stevie Wonder
Released: 1967

 

Lyrics for Someday at Christmas:

 

[Verse 1]
Someday at Christmas men won’t be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

 

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life’s really worth
There’ll be peace on earth

 

[Chorus]
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

 

[Verse 2]
Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

 

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

 

[Chorus]
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

 

[Verse 3]
Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

 

[Chorus]
(Someday all our dreams will come to be)
(Someday in a world where men are free)
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime

Lyrics for Little Saint Nick:

 

[Intro]
Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year
Oooooooo oooooooo[Verse 1]
Well, way up north where the air gets cold
There’s a tale about Christmas that you’ve all been told
And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
And he spends the whole year working out on his sled[Chorus]
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)[Verse 2]
Just a little bobsled we call it old Saint Nick
But she’ll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
She’s candy-apple red with a ski for a wheel
And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel![Chorus]
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)Run run reindeer
Run run reindeer
Whoa
Run run reindeer
Run run reindeer
He don’t miss no one[Verse 2]
And hauling through the snow at a frightening speed
With a half a dozen deer with Rudy to lead
He’s gotta wear his goggles because the snow really flies
And he’s cruising every pad with a little surprise[Chorus]
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)
It’s the little Saint Nick
(Ooooo, little Saint Nick)[Outro]
Ahhhhhh
Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year
Ahhhhhh
Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each yearAhhhhhh
Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year

Lyrics for Christmas Is All Around:

 

I feel it in my fingers
I feel it in my toes
Christmas is all around me
And so the feeling grows
It’s written in the wind
It’s everywhere I go
So if you really love Christmas
Come on and let it snow
You know I love Christmas
I always will
My mind’s made up
The way that I feel
There’s no beginning
There’ll be no end
‘Cause on Christmas
You can depend
You gave your presents to me
And I gave mine to you
I need Santa beside me
In everything I do
You know I love Christmas
I always will
My mind’s made up
The way that I feel
There’s no beginning
There’ll be no end
‘Cause on Christmas
You can depend
‘Cause on Christmas
You can depend
It’s written on the wind
It’s everywhere I go
So if you really love me
Come on and let it show
Come on and let it show
So if you really love
Come on and let it
If you really love me
Come on and let it
Now if you really love me
Come on and let it show

Christmas Makes Me Cry

Christmas Makes Me Cry LyricsProduced by Brandy Clark, Shane McAnally & Kacey Musgraves
Performed by Kacey Musgraves
Released: 2016

 

Lyrics for Christmas Makes Me Cry:

 

[Verse 1]
It’s all red and gold and Nat King Cole and tinsel on the tree
It’s all twinkle lights and snowy nights and the kids still believe
And I know that they say, “Have a happy holiday”
And every year, I sincerely try
Oh, but Christmas, it always makes me cry
[Verse 2]
It’s the ones we miss, no one to kiss under the mistletoe
Another year gone by, just one more that I, I couldn’t make it home
And I know that they say, “Have a happy holiday”
And every year, I swear I sincerely try
Oh, but Christmas, it always makes me cry
Always
[Verse 3]
Seems like everybody else is having fun
I wonder if I’m the only one
Who’s broken heart still has broken parts just wrapped in pretty paper
And it’s always sad seeing mom and dad getting a little grayer
And they always say, “Have a happy holiday”
And every year, I sincerely try
Oh, but Christmas, it always makes me cry

Released: 2004

 

Lyrics for Go Tell It on the Mountain:

 

[Chorus]
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born

 

[Verse 1]
Shepherds watching, over the flocks by night
And out of the darkness, shone a heavenly light
Feared and they trembled high above the earth
Singing in angel chorus telling of the Saviors birth

 

[Chorus]
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born

 

[Verse 2]
Guess I was a seeker, I saw them both night and day
Asked the Lord to help me, He showed me the way
Down in the manger the humble child was born
God sent us salvation on that Christmas morn

 

[Chorus]
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus is born
Go tell it on the mountain (tell it on the mountain)
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain

 

[Outro]
Jesus Christ is born

Lyrics for Don’t Shoot Me, Santa:

 

[Verse 1: Brandon Flowers & Santa]
Oh Santa, I’ve been waiting on you
That’s funny kid, because I’ve been coming for you
Oh Santa, I’ve been killing just for fun
Well the party’s over kid, because I
Because I got a bullet in my gun

You know it, Santa’s got a bullet in his gun

I’ve been a clean living boy, I promise you

I can’t believe the things I’m going through
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

 

[Verse 2: Brandon Flowers & Santa]
Oh Santa, It’s been a real hard year (Year)
There just ain’t no getting around this, life is hard
But look at me, I turned out alright

Hey Santa, why don’t we talk about it? Work it out
Believe me, this ain’t what I wanted
I love all you kids, you know that
Hell, I remember when you were just 10 years old
Playing out there in the desert
Just waiting for a sip of that sweet Mojave rain

 

[Pre-Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
In the sweet Mojave rain, the boy was on his own

 

[Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
I’ve been a clean living boy, I promise you
Did every little thing you asked me to
I can’t believe the things I’m going through
Hey, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

 

[Bridge: Brandon Flowers]
They had it coming so why can’t you see?
I couldn’t turn my cheek no longer
The sun is going down and Christmas is near
Just look the other way and I’ll disappear forever
Woo!

 

[Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me!
But the children on the street they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas LyricsProduced by Loreena McKennitt
Performed by Loreena McKennitt
Released: 1995

 

Lyrics for Good King Wenceslas:

 

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the Feast of Stephen
When the snow lay ’round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath’ring winter fuel

 

“Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know’st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?”
“Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes’ fountain”

 

“Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how
I can go no longer.”
“Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shall find the winter’s rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly”

 

In his master’s step he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men rejoice
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye, who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find mercy
