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.”
“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”
— Pope John Paul II
