I 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

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 her kitchen chair
She broke your crown and she cut your hair
And from you lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
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
And it doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

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
...
