Prepare The Way

“Prepare The Way” makes a way for God but also prepares us to respond to Him. And what better way to respond to God than the word “Hallelujah”? Ever wonder what it meant? It’s an exclamation of praise!

As in “Praise God!”, “Praise the Lord!”, “Thanks be to God!”… made up of “Halle-“, which in its Hebrew form is like the word “praise”, and “jah”, which is short for “Yahweh”. Hallelujah!

Scriptures mention of this phrase: “Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.” It’s not because the Lord dislikes winding roads. They’re saying, make way for Him, clear the path, make sure there’s room! We clear out the hindrances and obstacles that block us from accepting God to do His will. I can’t think of a better way to respond to this than putting our focus on Him, centering on His Truth, and singing out “Hallelujah”!

Prepare The Way
Words & Music by Andy Lee

Prepare the way for God and see
How marvelous, how great is He
No ear has heard, no eye has seen
A beauty like our God and King
A beauty like our God and King

Make way and make His presence known
Lift up His name so we may know
That He is God and He is good
A God so strong, a God so true
A God so strong, a God so true

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Our hearts are filled with Jesus Christ
The spring of life that won’t run dry
A love so deep, a love so high
All that we need, He will provide
All that we need, He will provide

All glory and all majesty
Be lifted to the King of kings
Unrivaled love, unending grace
The name above all other names
The name above all other names
