Raise a Hallelujah!
by Chris Lane 5 July 2021
The ancient Hebrew people had seven different words they used to express their praise to God. In verse 3, praise is 'halal' from which we derive the word hallelujah - an exuberant expression of celebration.
Some time ago a member of Newmount asked me if I'd heard the song “Raise a Hallelujah.” Since then I have listened to the song many times, and it has been a song God has laid on my heart.
The writers Jonathan and Melissa Helser wrote this song over the life of their friends’ young son who was in a critical condition in hospital. In their own words “while we were praying for a miracle a song came out of our mouths.” Worship can be a powerful weapon against the forces of the enemy. Never underestimate the power of your praises. Keep on worshiping through the trials and God will meet you there.
The words keep resounding with me.
When we sing ..... enemies flee
When we sing ..... louder than the unbelief
When we sing ..... our weapon is the melody
When we sing ..... heaven fights for us
When we sing ..... we declare God is King
When we sing ..... we declare God is alive
When we sing ..... fear takes a backseat
When we sing ..... heaven invades the earth
