"My Sweet Lord" is a song by former Beatles lead guitarist George Harrison, recorded and released in 1970 on his multi-platinum triple album All Things Must Pass. The song was written in praise of the Hindu god Krishna, while at the same time serving as a call to abandon religious sectarianism, with its deliberate blending of Christian "alleluia"s with chants of "hare Krishna" and Vedic prayer. "My Sweet Lord" is ranked 460th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
The song was also at the centre of a plagiarism suit due to its similarity to the Ronnie Mack song "He's So Fine", originally recorded by The Chiffons in December 1962.
