Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying,
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.”
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.”
2 Corinthians 8:9
The formality of a concert setting is fitting for praising the Lord Jesus in His majesty and wonder, while listening in a food court reminds us the Gospel is for the reality of who we are. There have been several flash-mob settings of the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s Messiah. This one is from November 2010.
“…and He shall reign for ever and ever….King of Kings, and Lord of Lords….Hallelujah!”
