Song Story: “Let This House Be Filled With Hallelujahs”

“At the center is Jesus Christ our Lord.”

This song was selected for Song Discovery before the upheaval caused by the pandemic, but today I find myself struck by a literal interpretation of the lyrics of the chorus. “Let this house be filled with hallelujahs.”

Many of us are currently experiencing life in a new way, forced into social isolation and loneliness. In this time, let us remember that the Church is not contained by walls, borders, or quarantine. Let us be encouraged to trust and united by this prayer.
