Peter Tosh
Hallelujah Time
[Verse 1]
Hear the children crying
But I know they cry not in vain
Now the times are changing
Love has 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
But the sweat from man's brow
The substance from our spine
We got to 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
Oh, "hallelujah" singing in the morning
Hallelujah time
Let them sing, don't let them cry

[Verse 2]
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
