“Hallelujah” – performed by Jeff Buckley

Well 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?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

But baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

As a part of the whole funeral planning process, whether the remains will be buried or cremated, a memorial service is a good way to commemorate the life of the deceased.

The casket or the cremation urns can be displayed in the front as the people do the memorial. One of the songs that you can play on the service is “Hallelujah” which was performed by Jeff Buckley and written by Hayley Williams and Josh Farro.

If you listen to the lyrics, you will notice that the song has a certain religious connotation so this piece will be perfect for those religious Christians.

The basic premise of the song is a person who has gotten astray and has found meaning in life through the help of God. This is perfect for those deceased who have had very tough experiences and challenges when they were still alive. This is also a good song for those people who have died troubled. It could mean that their souls will still be with God in heaven through the guidance of the light.

The song tells the people that there will be experiences that will question each other’s faith but if your faith is strong, you will still be able to find God.

There are other funeral songs that you can play during the service which you can find at www.songmeanings.net.
