Achieving little initial success, the song found greater popular acclaim through a recording by John Cale , which inspired a recording by Jeff Buckley. It has been viewed as a "baseline" for secular hymns. Following its increased popularity after being featured in the film Shrek ,   many other arrangements have been performed in recordings and in concert, with over versions known. Written in the key of C major , the chord progression matches lyrics from the song: "goes like this, the fourth , the fifth , the minor fall , and the major lift": C, F, G, A minor, F. Cohen wrote around 80 draft verses for "Hallelujah", with one writing session at the Royalton Hotel in New York where he was reduced to sitting on the floor in his underwear, banging his head on the floor. Following his original studio-album version, Cohen performed the original song on his world tour in , but live performances during his and tours almost invariably contained a quite different set of lyrics. Numerous singers mix lyrics from both versions, and occasionally make direct lyric changes; for example, in place of Cohen's "holy dove", Canadian-American singer Rufus Wainwright substituted "holy dark", while Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe sang "holy ghost".

God told me to marry my husband. Too often, I think, priesthood holders think that being overly controlling, they are simply wielding their authority in the home. You won't know this until you do it and that is really important information to get before a marriage contract. I have missed the Church in some ways, and certainly the blessings of a temple marriage. If you are only after non-serious dates and spend a great time, you should be fine with this set up. Props to people who do. Never ask vague questions and give her definite options instead.
