Hallelujah- New Lyrics with A new FOCUS! Yay!

I’ve heard there was a secret chord 
That David played, it pleased the Lord.  
But You don’t love us for our music, do You? 
Sin goes like this: The fourth, the fifth, 
Adam’s fall, the major rift, 
The baffled king neglecting Hallelujah. 
 Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

Nathan said, “I see your lust. 
You violate a soldier’s trust. 
Your pride, your pomp, at night they overthrew you. 
You steal, you kill, you get your way, 
But God has said, your child will pay,  
And from your lips He’ll draw the Hallelujah.” 

David prayed, “Have mercy, Lord, 
You saved me from Goliath’s sword. 
Yes, I lived for self before I knew you. 
Now, more evil in your sight, 
So I give up, I cannot fight.  
Mine’s a cold and broken Hallelujah.” 

“Blood your hyssop, I’ll be clean. 
Wash me so my sin’s not seen. 
Give me of your Holy Spirit, will you?  
Create in me a new, clean heart. 
Give me now a strong, fresh start,  
So every breath I draw is Hallelujah.” 

“You don’t delight in sacrifice. 
You don’t excuse our secret vice. 
You want from us a broken spirit, do you? 
You’ve shown me what I did was wrong. 
I’ll stand before You, Lord of song,  
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah.”
