Chris Tomlin - Hallelujah

Chris Tomlin - Hallelujah

Christmas is a special time of year. Gifts are exchanged, food is consumed (often too much) and movies are viewed. With so much going on, it’s always a good idea to remind ourselves of the real reason for family get-togethers and parties: the birth of Jesus Christ.

Blessing Offor’s “Hallelujah” tells the real story of Christmas in song. Chris Tomlin joins Blessing on the upbeat and catchy tune as they retell the events surrounding the birth of Christ. 

Blessing begins the song with the Magis' journey to find where Jesus had been born. After they reach their much-anticipated destination, Blessing belts out that the Magi immediately dropped to the ground and started praising the little boy found in the manger. The Magi, the song says, were joined with the angels as they shouted "hallelujah."

To Blessing’s left, Chris can be seen sitting on a stool as he sings the song’s chorus. 

The song’s chorus, simple and straightforward, tells of the momentous and joyous occasion that would forever change the world.

“Precious little child
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Sound of the angels’ joy”

In addition to providing vocals to the Christmas song, Blessing can be seen in the video sitting at a piano playing as several people, standing all around him, sing backup.

As the many musicians in the room sing the beautiful song, the video shows their studio adorned with Christmas-themed decorations. Lighted Christmas trees are seen behind the musicians in nearly every single shot.

Christmas, with its multitude of activities, can become an overwhelming time of year. Late December and sometimes even early January comes with obligations that can lead us to overlook and perhaps even resent the Christmas season but let us not ever forget the real meaning of the season. 

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son, is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
