There's an arrangement in "Solo Pieces for Acoustic Guitar: New Acoustic Arrangements of 11Popular Songs for Guitar, Vol. 2", (book and CD), published by Wise Publications (ISBN: 978-1-84772-630-8).

Michael Marc also offers an arrangement of the piece:

http://michaelmarc.com/en/hallelujah-sheet-music-tabs

The last time I checked you could hear both on YouTube, but since the song is under copyright, you'll have to search for it yourself, as the URL will be blocked here.

Addendum on 02/19/18: An arrangement can also be found in "Wedding Guitar Solos", from the Hal Leonard Wedding Essentials series (ISBN-10: 1423488660; ISBN-13: 978-1423488668).

The Beatles' "Yesterday" was my previous winner but that's about the most bizarre wedding music suggestion I've come across so far ... why on earth?

We need to establish "Hallelujah free zones" for our sanity. The song is 'just a little' overplayed. I'm waiting for Tiny Tim to release his cover. Then everyone will have covered it and we can move on.

and yeah some day people will actually listen to the lyrics and be surprised.

Well, by that measure then we should also ban Leyenda and Recuerdos de la Alhambra, which would be fine by me.

I thought that too--weren't a lot of his songs very agnostic?

Oh I like Leonard Cohen, mostly. His lyrics often blend spiritual and sexual themes. I think that he was quite sincere about both.

There was a time when I thought I liked this tune, but then I read the lyrics and decided against it. I'm just not comfortable with singing about taking God's name in vein.
