‘Hallelujah’ by Leonard Cohen

‘Hallelujah’

by Leonard Cohen

“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…”

You can read the lyrics in full here. Although Jeff Buckley’s rendition of the song is arguably best loved, the original was penned by Leonard Cohen.
