Intro

Now I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played and it pleased the Lord

But you don't really care for music, do you?

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth,

The minor fall, the major lift,

The baffled king composing, Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Hallelu - jah.

Your faith was strong but you needed proof,

You saw her bathing on the roof:

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you.

She tied you to a kitchen chair,

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair,

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Hallelu - jah.

You say I took the name in vain,

Though I don't even know the name,

But if I did, well really, what's it to you?

There's a blaze of light in every word,

It doesn't matter which you heard:

The holy or the broken Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Hallelu - jah.

I did my best, it wasn't much,

I couldn't feel so I tried to touch.

I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you.

And even though it all went wrong

I'll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Hallelu - jah.

Enjoy!
