Lyrics:
HALLELUJAH
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 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 a kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah!

Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah Hallelujah"

    Play for David now, Leonard. And baffle him once more.

  2. R.I.P. to you dear Marie Paule and to you our dear Leonard Cohen. I am asking God to bless and protect all our dear friends and families. I love you <3

    “I didnt come here to London just to fool you.”

    THAT is why Leonard is a legend.

  4. Leonard Cohen sang like God wanted to hear someone singing. He is indeed one with God as he sings this song. Leonard what is it like to be with Jesus? Is it as grand as your were or even better?

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. I think Leonard Cohen was truly magical. He sang from his soul. Whether he would agree or not he indeed sang for God. I believe people are drawn closer to God just by hearing and seeing him sing! There was only one Leonard Cohen. Wouldn’t it be a better world if we each did things from our soul? Sometimes when I don’t feel like cleaning, I wonder how I would feel about cleaning if God asked me to do so. Then it becomes easy and I do such a good job.

    • He may not be with Jesus, as Leonard Cohen is Jewish, but he is definitely with Hashem 🙂

    • +Lilah Katepsky You don’t need to be a Jewish,Muslim,Hindu to be with,feel the son of god our lord Jesus Christ . Everyone one after their death comes to Jesus and the lord will decide their eternal life… Cohen Is the leader of the heaven coir! 110% sure!

      CubeKeith you kind of do though. Jews don’t believe Jesus is God. We don’t believe in Jesus. Cohen is probably leading heaven’s choir though.

    • I think he was created to make this song…….

  5. He wrote this wonderful sing?…

    happy new year any one who’s watching this in 2018

  8. Thank you, Leonard.

    I am an atheist… But the melody, the chords, the lyrics of this masterpiece and Leonard’s voice always bring tears to my eyes…

    • adysaxman77 Look at the actual interview about the song. It states it isn’t religious. It isn’t a hallelujah of religious faith, but that of faith in life, though the good and the bad.

    • Its the lord breaking through and his light shines to bring you to him much love and respect

    • Geek Select I’ll take your word for it, but it just seems a little strange when the lyrics involve both Biblical figures and words of praise to the God of the Bible.

    • Derek Hitchcock April 4, 2018 @ 4:16 am

      You do know this song is far more about sex than it is about religion, right?

    • DO YOU KNOW WHAT HALLELUIA MEANS?

  10. A true legend. ❤ When art was art, not industry.

  11. This is the best performance I’ve ever seen of this song .The Original is always the best ❤❤❤

    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, 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 a kitchen chair
    And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Now, maybe there’s a god of love
    As for me, all I ever learned from love
    Is to how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
    But it’s not a crime that you’re here tonight
    It’s not some pilgrim who claims to have seen the light, no
    It’s a cold and it’s a very broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Oh, people, I’ve been here before
    I know this room and I’ve walked this floor
    You see, I used to live alone before I knew you
    And I’ve seen your flag on the Marble Arch
    But listen love, love is not some kind of victory march, no
    It’s a cold and it’s a very lonely Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    There was a time you let me know
    What’s really going on below
    But now, now you never even show it to me, do you?
    I remember when I moved in you
    And the holy dove, she was moving too
    And every single breath that we drew was Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    I’ve done my best, I know it wasn’t much
    I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch
    I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come here to fool you
    And even though it all went wrong
    I’ll stand right here, before the Lord of Song
    With nothing, nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

  13. Leonard Cohen was one of the best song writers that ever lived. He does his own song great for his age. I can’t even began to think of all the great songs this man wrote.

    • jack thomas I love Leonard Cohen I’ve been listening to him for years and years since the late 60s I think he is one of the best songwriters and singers of all times thank you for putting him on YouTube and for everything you said about him because I think he is just wonderful I can’t even begin to think of a word that I could use to describe the love that comes from his voice

    • Thank you Whitney for the comment.
