Psalm 106:1 (DARBY), “Hallelujah! Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever.”

Psalm 106:1 (DARBY), “Hallelujah! Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever.”

Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord, hallelujah!

There is a song, entitled “Hallelujah”, which was sung by “Alexandra”, from the UK , who was the winner of the X Factor 2008. Leonard Cohen wrote the song, and it was also sung by Rufus Wainwright in the film, “SHREK”. The first few lines of the song say this: “I’ve heard there was a secret cord that David played and it pleased the Lord, the Bible King composing hallelujah”

The word Hallelujah comes from a Greek word, “hallelouia”, meaning “praise”, and from the Hebrew word, “hallelu-yah” meaning, “praise Yahweh”. No matter what language you use to say the word, “hallelujah”, it spells out the same meaning, “Praise God!”

Hallelujah to God, for He is good, and his mercies endures forever. We do not sing any “broken hallelujahs” to God. Our praise is not stifled, nor is it a lacklustre, feeble or ungrateful one, but it is a praise that resounds with victory. It roars with conquest, in praise to our God.

Our Hallelujah is not one of mourning, but of joy.

Our Hallelujah is not one of defeat, but one of victory.

Our Hallelujah is not one of sadness, but one of gladness.

Our Hallelujah is not one of helplessness, but one of hope.

Our Hallelujah is not one of despondency, but one of eternal praise.

My friend, we have so many blessings for which we can give thanks to God. So let our, “Hallelujah” to Him be strong, and full of gratitude and praise. Let us lift our voices and sing with the writer of our text for today from, Psalm 106:1 (DARBY), “Hallelujah! Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever.”

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
