Christmas Tree of the Day December 14, 2013 – Cloverton’s A Hallelujah Christmas

Our longtime and very dear friends, Tom and DJ, live deep in the heart of Texas. It’s December. Look at that beautiful Oak Tree showing through their transom window – still all leafy and green while we’re shivering up north in Oklahoma. We had hoped to visit and see this beautiful creation in person, but things happen and it didn’t happen. Tom suggested today’s music video, A Hallelujah Christmas by Cloverton. I think you’ll love it. Not surprisingly, my favorite Christian blogger, Carl Middleton, also alerted me to A Hallelujah Christmas. The video is a live performance.

I’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

If you have a photo of your tree, send it to me (find my email address under the ‘Contact’ tab above). I would love to post it assuming you aren’t a troll who might place a Chairman Mao ornament on your unsuspecting tree (as did the White House on Obama’s first Christmas in the White House), or something equally egregious. I reserve the right to pick and choose based solely on the idea of a tree in the spirit of Christmas, not Satan, atheism or other progressive agendas. I’ll identify your tree and link in any way you prefer, or not i.d., it’s your choice.
