We Come Rejoicing: Hallelujah!

The word "Hallelujah" is a joyful word of “praise” to the almighty God. Amazingly, it is one word whose pronunciation remains the same even in my vernacular; and am certain in yours too. No one can dare change that sound! Psalm 147:1 tells us of the privilege of praising God. That it is good, pleasant and proper.
Rudolf Stier, in "The Epistle of James Expounded", 1859 rightly wrote that: “The same God who furnished the birds of heaven with the notes wherein they unconsciously praise their Creator, gave to man the power to sing... Let him to whom it is granted rejoice therein; let him who lacks it seek, if possible, to excite it; for it is a good gift of the Creator. Let our children learn to sing in the schools, even as they learn to read. Our fathers sang more in all the affairs of life than we do; our tunes are in this respect less fresh, and artless, and joyous. There are many among us who never sing, except when adding their voices to the voice of the church, -- and therefore they sing so badly there. Not that a harsh song from a good heart is unacceptable to God; but he should have our best. As David in his day took care that there should be practised singers for the sanctuary, we also should make provision for the church's service of song, that God may have in all respects a perfect offering. How gracious and lovely is the congregation singing with the heart acceptable songs!”
In this respect, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir performed the song We Come Rejoicing. It is so delicious!

For the Joy that fills our hearts as we come singing
Praising our redeemer, lifting our sweet song
