- How do you feel when you hear the “Hallellujah Chorus?” Are you compelled to join in? Why?
- In what ways did Handel capture the glory of God as he saw it in the music and lyrics?
- Paul says in 1 Corinthians 13:12 that we see God now only as “a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.” Considering the majesty of God as depicted in the “Hallelujah Chorus,” contemplate God’s glory as best you can, knowing it is but a shadow of what we will see when we meet God face to face. Offer your praise to Him, either by singing along or just using your own words.
