A “Christian” re-write of Leonard Cohen’s Halleluia

Radical conservative Christian (and neocon) Marvin Olasky has improved Leonard Cohen’s classic Halleluia

Verse 4:

“Blood your hyssop, I’ll be clean.
Wash me so my sin’s not seen.
Give me of your Holy Spirit, will you?
Create in me a new, clean heart.

So every breath I draw is Hallelujah.”

Here’s Cohen singing it recently:

Or one of my favorites, KD Lang:
