The not famous Wedding Hallelujah version

Now, I know I wasn't the first to maybe adapt Leonard Cohen's song to be more "Wedding" or "Religious" rather than his passionate love piece that is more about broken love than unrequited love.

2011 I posted this to youtube, and it continually gets views and peaked at 105 in a day recently, all just end trails from the Priest singing a version in Church.  I'm not gritching or complaining... just would love to hear if my tweaks to the song inspired anyone to do the same.

The lyrics are also posted on my Musings blog at :  Also getting a few hits lately.

Here they are for you:

"Hallelujah" (wedding version)

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
For you today we rejoice with music, with you
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
Beloved king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed love
Saw each other as light rose above
Beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
In a moment both became aware
You now share the throne with loving care
And from your lips, you sing Hallelujah

Today you have been here before
You know this room, You’ve walked this floor
You used to live apart before You knew each
So raise your flag on the marble arch
Love is a victory sacred march
So rejoice and go singing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
