What happened to hallelujah?

The word on which our worship hung and the majesty of Jesus became tangible

as in the quiet moments of exhaustion when we turn to God and express his greatness.

The word used toward any other being would sound to heavy for the subject to hear.

Our hallelujahs have slipped.

We use it in public praise for the masses and the impact of such a word: hallelujah,

is now a shouted exclamation, spoken by herds as a filler to add weights to tepid worship.

Let us return to whispering hallelujah.

In those moments of intimacy with your God

when we recount what God has done and sit on our knees in awe that such a God desires

access to our hearts through an unconditional relationship,

who exceeds the expectations  of everything we could ask or imagine.

And we breathe,

with relief, reverence, and awe.
