hallelujah lyrics – bob marley

(hear the children cryin’)
but i know they cry not in vain
for now the times are changin’
love bud’s come to bloom again

smelling the air when spring comes by raindrops
reminds us of youthful days
but now it’s not rain that water the cane crops

like the sweat from man’s brow
the substance from our spine
we gotta keep on living
living on borrowed time

(hallelujah time)
yes, you can hear the children singing
(hallelujah time)
as they go singing by and by
(hallelujah time)
ooh, hallelujah singing in the morning
(singing, hallelujah time)
let them sing, don’t you let them cry

(over rocks and mountains)
the sheep are scattered all around
over hills and valleys
they are everywhere to be found

but though we bear our burdens now
all afflictions got to end somehow
from swinging the hammer, pulling the plough

why won’t you let us be
to live in harmony?
we like to be free
like birds in a tree

(hallelujah time)
yes, you can hear the children singing
(hallelujah time)
as they go singing by and by
(hallelujah time)
ooh, hallelujah singing in the morning
(singing, hallelujah time)
let them sing, never let them cry
(hallelujah time)

ooh, hallelujah singing in this morning
(singing, hallelujah time)
ooh, hallelujah singing in this morning
