...
And even though it all went wrong,
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue
But Hallelujah


I can't get this song out of my head. I have always liked the Shrek soundtrack version (John Cale/Rufus Wainwright), and there are other versions by various artists, but I think the original is the most powerful. Beautiful lyrics. I wonder why none of the other cover artists have used the last two verses. Apparently, there are more - Cale once said in an interview that Cohen had faxed him as many as 15 verses? I wish I could get my hands on them.

The video is a bit old-fashioned, so the young youtube reviewers feel compelled to bash it. Whatever :)
