Evancho, Jackie - Hallelujah Lyrics

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 in 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, Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, 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, Hallelujah

    Dear Jackie: you don't get to "Hallelujah" AND "MAGA". We never forget. Sincerely, the Interwebz.

    Scuffling Boogaloo

    This better be a joke

    Brad K

    Wow, you are never going to forget that a 16 yer old girl sang at Trumps inauguration? That is really said to hold a grudge like that. You have a problem!


    @Scuffling Boogaloo No unfortunately a few remaining politically illiterate rubs actually believe the propaganda they are feed with a fire hose by the political criminal class and their media cohorts.

  4. Carol Minot

    Peter takes acappella to new heights! My mind is officially blown away by his and Jackie's rendition of Hallelujah! And all his music; he's awesome!

  5. Uriel Bordon 2

    espectacular .... you cover is really beatiful

  6. Mythus News

    Not to be critical, but this would have been better without multiplying the singers images. Honestly, I felt it made it seem cheap production and took from their individual beauty.

  7. ali bazzi

    She sounds like a he... Please don't do anymore colabs with her.


    ROFL...… one of the country's premier young Lyric Soprano's sounds like a he? Here you go maybe this will help, and check your speakers, something is obviously short circuited. https://www.youtube.com/user/usedmeb4


    She is a soprano. Do you know any males older than 15 who are sopranos?

    ali bazzi

    @tunanorth yes


    @ali bazzi I thought Castrato were illegal in modern times.


    @tunanorth lol

  8. The Covenant

  12. Josh Bieler

    Albanian flower 🌹 proof of moonlight... she broke your thrown, Afterwards flight because promises mean... shivers 🥶 when broken like bread 🥖... I told the truth when said... faster than a broken arrow will fly... does distance between us half itself... with every twinge of heart’s string... a shot at you in the dark... hallelujah...

  13. Rebecca Rich

    Sounds so good but no matter how hard I try not to I can only ever hear the Pentatonix arrangement in my head when listening to any version of this song

  14. Tynan Cravy

    Finally! A female singer that doesn’t sound airy!


    She is very special... https://www.youtube.com/user/usedmeb4

    Fantastic music, Peter Hollins !!!!!!! New possibilities - "Azikatale" ! Zulu/South African song. Or "Shosholosa" - a song about the railway journey to the gold mines of South Africa. Both lend themselves to a capella.

  65. Phantom Anime98

    Fun fact, this song was written as a break-up song

  66. R D

    Congratulations on another video hitting 7 million views!

  67. Patricia Ruelland

    Beautiful you two, just Beautiful!!!

  68. Keri Dougherty

    That's it! Now I'm gonna have to replay this song over and over again. I love how beautiful it sounds, with you guys singing your heart out!

  69. Värmod Hauksson

    I like your version better than the original. Nice.

  70. Mhel Traj

    Angelic voice!

  71. Trinion -

    It’s so beautiful. Have you guys released albums?? Also could I suggest Bonnie Tyler “ I need a hero”


    https://peterhollens.com/ He has albums on his site, otherwise his music is on Spotify ^^

    Trinion -


  72. Donaald Dubray

    My God you must be a angel from heaven Jackie your voice is heavenly

  73. Razar Campbell

    I normally prefer female voices by far. Yet for some reason, with this song, I much prefer Peter's singing. I think Jackie's voice is too high pitched for me to enjoy her singing this particular song.


    The juxtaposition is why Peter chose Evancho, otherwise its just the same old! That's the brilliance of Hollens. You have to listen 3x to get why its amazing.

  74. Christina M

    Well, I don't care for the processing -- when an artist, (here Peter Hollens,) overlays their own voice tracks for harmony. I mean, it sounds great, but I can still hear the science-fiction quality of it. I do like this kind of processing in some songs, but this is not the best rendition of this song I've ever heard, or anywhere close. It is supposed to be soulful. Evancho's part is excellent.

  75. Alessandro Beretta

    For Karaoke, is it possible to have the base of the song without main voice? I can pay, if need!!

  76. Dee Nagara

    Wonderful rendition! Greetings from Malaysia!

  77. jrich$

    The most beautiful rendition I’ve ever heard

  78. Taylor Dickinson

    If you listen to this version on night core, when the girl sings it sounds like an angel 😍



  79. Your Dwelling Space

    My heart can't take how beautiful this is! 😍😍😍😍😍

  80. JACQUEMIN carole

    shallow , always remember us this way ,look what i found and poker face please

  81. Elizabeth Cunius

    Thanks so much. I play this every time I'm on the computer. (I remember when Jackie won AGT. ) Thanks again.


    She releases another new album on the 12th.

  82. Donaald Dubray

    Great job doing Hallelujah that's almost as good as a Pentatonix

  83. Carol Manderscheid Andrews

    this is a beautiful song. however, it teaches wrong principles. that it is the woman's fault for being beautiful and the man is an innocent victim for committing adultery! that is, if this is all about King David in the Bible.

  84. anna Last

    Such humility...I like that............This song in acapella , brought tears to my eyes.........very emotional. Thank u, it was beautiful, thank you.

  85. Pieguy 91


  86. hopewec

    Lenard Cohan would love this cover!

  87. Kelsium Intake

    Why does Peter look like a cross between Dean Winchester and Nicholas Cage?

  88. DavidLister77

    I find it so hard to criticise as it is such a beautiful cover, but, the proper lyrics are "do ya", which rhymes with hallelujah. "Do you" just sounds out of place.


    There are numerous instances of Leonard Cohen himself singing it as "Do You".

  89. RockAndRoll Amanda

    could you do sound of silence?


    RockAndRoll Amanda Peter did that search for it

  90. Brandon Fisher

    I agree this is a fantastic song. I really enjoy this song and I’ listened to this song many times. I think the voices blend beautifully together, the harmonies are perfection and it’s absolutely incredible.

  91. Irene Lazar

    Perfect God Bless ❤️❌⭕️✊

  92. Michael Domeier

    I got chills that have nothing to do with the temperature in the room. Beautiful.

  93. Adrianna Austin

    Her voice thoooo

    Silver Schooner

    Chills! 😮

  94. 4vsbs2

    Two wonderful voices and an old but marvelous piece of music make one's listening pleasure the best that it can be!!!

  95. jeffrey stockle

    Peter your voice connects me with GOD & the Arch Angels! Jackie you have the voice of an Angel!


    jeffrey stockle this isn’t a religious song.....

  96. Papa Hop

    How about "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

  97. Luciana Leite

    Is beautiful...

  98. Greg Hurst

    I love this version. The two voices fit together beautifully. A like button is not enough.

  99. Girl Lay

    Love 😍♥️

  100. Shining sapphire

    May you can do the Monster from Rihanna and Eminem, please :)
