Below is an original arrangement by Garth Smith featuring the vocal talent of Lauren Sullivan with lyrics by Hailey Isaacson Buehler and Dennis Isaacson. Background vocals are provided by Becky Willard. Videographer is Dan Williams.
While Cohen’s original “Hallelujah” is extremely popular and loved by millions, it may not always appropriate to be sung in a religious setting due to its lyrics. “Heaven’s Hallelujah” starts with Cohen’s “Broken Hallelujah” as we deal with the trials and setbacks of this life. The song then elevates the listener to a “Hopeful Hallelujah” as we realize that Christ brings us a higher purpose to life. As we recognize that Christ’s atonement will raise us from the grave, the song progresses to a “Praiseful Hallelujah”. The song then reaches the climax with an eternal expression of “Endless Hallelujah” in the presence of the Savior as we cross to the other side and experience the infinite love of Christ for us.

While Cohen's original "Hallelujah" is extremely popular and loved by millions, it isn't always appropriate to be sung in a religious setting due to its darker lyrics. "Heaven's Hallelujah" starts with Cohen's "Broken Hallelujah" as we deal with the trials and setbacks of this life. The song then elevates the listener to a "Hopeful Hallelujah" as we realize that Christ brings us a higher purpose to life. As we recognize that Christ's atonement will raise us from the grave, the song progresses to a "Praiseful Hallelujah". The song then reaches the climax with an eternal expression of "Endless Hallelujah" in the presence of the Savior as we cross to the other side and experience the infinite love of Christ for us.
