Paul & Silas, jailed & chained 

Offered up a midnight praise 

Freedom flowed from their refrain 

Their praise of God had been ordained


One last lap 'round Jericho 

Joshua cried out, "Let'er Blow" 

The trumpets raised a righteous sound &

With a shout of praise the city walls crashed down


Tehillah, We cry Tehillah,

Jesus be enthroned upon our praise

Tehillah, We cry Tehillah

Demonstrate Your power in our praise!


With chains to break & walls yet to fell 

The Church must storm the gates of hell 

Our Heads we bow, Our Hands we raise 

We lift Our voice in ordained praise! 

We lift ONE voice in ordained praise!

Tehillah, We cry Tehillah, 

Jesus be enthroned upon our praise 

Tehillah, We cry Tehillah 

Demonstrate Your Power in our Praise

Tehillah, We cry Tehillah, !!!! 



Tehillah (Tuh*He*Luh) is the praise that God inhabits (sits enthroned on!) 

(Psalm 22:3) God manifests Himself in the midst of Passionate Praise & singing! 

TEHILLAH is one of seven Hebrew words for Praise, from the word halal and means "the singing of halals, to sing or to laud; perceived to involve music, especially singing; hymns of the Spirit or praise.” Psalm 22:3 Yet Thou art holy, O Thou who art enthroned upon the praises (tehillah) of Israel. Isaiah 61:3 To grant to those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise (tehillah) instead of the spirit of fainting, So they shall be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. OTHER REFERENCES:, Psalm 8:2 (NIV),Exodus 15:11; Deuteronomy 10:21; Nehemiah 9:5; Psalms 9:14, 22:25; Jeremiah!

Prevailing through Praise!!!

Psalm 8:2 

From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. NIV 

One thing we notice in the psalms of David is that he says a great deal about his enemies. If ever a man had enemies, it was David. But he had learned the secret of dealing with his enemies. He had learned the secret of evoking God’s presence and God’s help and here he reveals the secret very simply. It’s to offer God praise. 

He says, “God has ordained from the lips of children and infants praise.” Children and infants are the weakest in the natural, but when praise comes from the lips of even the weakest; its effect is to silence the foe and the avenger!
