Happy Christmas! Handel – Messiah – Hallelujah Chorus


animated_christmas_tree_2013 (1)


From Andre Rieu’s “Live From Radio City Music Hall” in New York City 2004, with the Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Harlem Gospel Choir.

Though heavily romanticized, it is one of the best renditions of this magnificent piece, in this one’s opinion.

LYRICS:

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

For the lord God omnipotent reigneth
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
For the lord God omnipotent reigneth
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
For the lord God omnipotent reigneth
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah 
(For the lord God omnipotent reigneth)
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah 

For the lord God omnipotent reigneth 
(Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah)
Hallelujah 

The kingdom of this world; 
is become 
the kingdom of our Lord
and of His Christ 
and of His Christ 

And He shall reign for ever and ever
And he shall reign forever and ever
And he shall reign forever and ever
And he shall reign forever and ever

King of kings forever and ever hallelujah hallelujah
and lord of lords forever and ever hallelujah hallelujah
King of kings forever and ever hallelujah hallelujah
and lord of lords forever and ever hallelujah hallelujah
King of kings forever and ever hallelujah hallelujah
and lord of lords
King of kings and lord of lords

And he shall reign
And he shall reign
And he shall reign
He shall reign
And he shall reign forever and ever

King of kings forever and ever
and lord of lords hallelujah hallelujah
And he shall reign forever and ever

King of kings and lord of lords
King of kings and lord of lords
And he shall reign forever and ever

Forever and ever and ever and ever 
(King of kings and lord of lords)

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah
