Sunday Morning Praise

When searching for a hymn last night, I so strongly wanted to just lift up praises to our sovereign God. I couldn't think of a better expression of praise than the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah. Enjoy!




Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
And of His Christ, and of His Christ;
And He shall reign for ever and ever,
For ever and ever, forever and ever,

King of kings, and Lord of lords,
King of kings, and Lord of lords,
And Lord of lords,
And He shall reign,
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings, forever and ever,
And Lord of lords,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!

  2. I hope my neighbors enjoyed it last night! I must've listened to 4 or 5 different ones before I settled on this one. Perfect praise!

  3. God, the Holy One of Israel was smiling down on George Frideric Handel when he wrote this wonderful, edifying piece about His Son, Jesus Christ, who is coming soon to take His remnant home. MARANATHA!!! This was my favorite song to sing in high school choir; yes a public school.

  4. A public school allowed such glorious, Biblical Truth? Imagine that! Times sure have changed...just as God's Word predicted!

    But yes, you are right, Anonymous- Surely the Holy Spirit was composing along with Handel when this was written! Doesn't it just make you yearn to hear that trumpet even more? MARANATHA!
