We often here the word hallelujah, commonly in elderly people. In Hebrew, this means “Praise ye the Lord.” But what does it really mean? This holy week find out how can we truly praise the Lord?

May we, with the future dawning .

Day by day from sin be free,

That on resurrection morning

We may rise at peace with thee,

Ever praising, ever praising,

Thruout all eternity;

Ever praising, ever praising,

Thruout all eternity.

This song is from the Hymn entitled Lord, Accept Our True Devotion. This is one of the sweetest hymn, it goes down straight to your soul and heart. We can often hear and see that “praising” is the most common theme of this song. But what does praise really means? Praising is to express warm approval or admiration of someone or something. Meaning, if we praise Him, we admire Him leading to following His works and obeying His words. If we follow Jesus Christ, we will find new life and our way back to God.

“The Savior fully and passionately accomplished the Atonement. He took upon Himself the ‘burdens of the sins of mankind’ and the ‘horrors that Satan … could inflict.’ In this process He endured the fraudulently concocted trials and the terrible, tragic events leading to His Crucifixion. This ultimately culminated in Christ’s triumphant Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Christ fulfilled His sacred mission as Savior and Redeemer. We will be resurrected from death and have our spirits reunited with our bodies. Based on personal worthiness, we may through His grace have the glorious opportunity of entering back into the presence of God”. In this Easter season, let us sing Hallelujah to the resurrected Christ and Savior by rediscovering His life and teachings. Here are some ways we can remember Him this Easter week and praise him as well.

Things You Might Do:

  • Ponder on the times God has granted you grace and record these experiences in your journal.
  • Set goals to stretch your abilities and take time to recognize the Savior’s grace as you strive to reach your goals.
  • Share your testimony and experiences with others at home, at school, at church, on social media.

President Thomas S. Monson, the prophet of the world today, testified, “Of Him who delivered each of us from endless death, even Jesus Christ, I testify that He is a teacher of truth—but He is more than a teacher. He is the Exemplar of the perfect life—but He is more than an exemplar. He is the Great Physician—but He is more than a physician. He who rescued the ‘lost battalion’ of mankind is the literal Savior of the world, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the Holy One of Israel—even the risen Lord—who declared, ‘I am the first and the last; I am he who liveth, I am he who was slain; I am your advocate with the Father.'”. As we remember his sacrifices, let us ask ourselves, “Do I really praise Him?”
