A Navy Veteran Rewrites Hallelujah Lyrics

Note from The Sister Christian:  Navy Vet Sailor Jerri rewrote one of the most iconic songs of all time, “Hallelujah,” in order to honor military Veterans across the country.

I always think of our soliders, especially during the holiday season.  You can Google the title of this blog and find her U-Tube Video as she sings this song with such passion and conviction that I encourage anyone that hasn’t hear this yet to check it out.


You packed your bags and shut the door,

You crossed the sea in a battle war,

You didn’t know  just what would happen to ya.

Stepped on the dirt, boots on the ground,

And gunfire was the only sound,

And to yourself you whispered Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  Hallelujah,

Every day and every night,

you walk the walk you fight the fight,

You never saw the end insight now did ya?

The days are washing a haze of red,

the blood, the mud, too many dead,

your weary soul was crying hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  Hallelujah,

Too late to help,  you hear a shot,

You know you’re in a deadly spot,

You never thought the day would come now did ya?

Your brother falls down to the ground,

The enemy is all around,

And from your lips you scream a hallelujah. 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  Hallelujah,

You fought the fight til it was done,

You have the strength to carry on,

You thought it’d be much better back home, did ya?

You try each day, keep pushin’ through,

But the battle is inside of you,

It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,  


God Bless our soliders and Veterns who have served and protected our nation.     The Sister Christian wishes you and your family a safe holiday season.  Merry Christmas!
