How to teach: Hallelujah and Teaching Children to Worship

This is simple but profound. We were made for worship. The Bible commands us concerning worship: “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!” (Ps 150:6) We are all called to worship Him, for the sake of His glory: “Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.” (Ps 29:2) And this command is even accompanied with raising up our hands: “Lift up your hands… and bless the Lord!” (Ps 134:2)

In this lesson, we’re going to learn the simplified version of “Hallelujah” (praise The Lord) and how to teach it to the children so they can partake in worship.

Phase One

Teaching this is simple. When a worship song is sung and/ or when the children are dancing in praise, sign “Hallelujah” with raised, questioning eyebrows and smiles.

Repeat the sign with neutral, statement eyebrows.

Phase Two

When a worship song is sung and/ or when the children are dancing in praise, sign “Hallelujah” with raised, questioning eyebrows and smiles.

Help the child sign it till they can do it on their own.

Phase Three

When a worship song is sung and/ or when the children are dancing in praise, sign “Hallelujah” with raised, questioning eyebrows, and smiles.

Require the child to respond with the sign.
