Word of the Day : Hallelujah

Oct 23, 2021 | Word of the Day

HALLELUJAH – a shout or song of praise or thanksgiving; used to express praise, joy, or thanks

As an exclamation, the word “hallelujah”, sometimes rendered “alleluia”, is a way to give God the honor or glory. Literally, it means “praise ye YAH (Yahweh)” in Hebrew. Today, we might say “Hallelujah” or “Praise the Lord!”.

Scripture: Revelation 19:6

“Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.”

Saying:

“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.” 

— Pope John Paul II
