Acoustic Rendition Of 'Raise A Hallelujah' From Jonathan And Melissa Helser

Christian artists Jonathan and Melissa Helser perform an acoustic rendition of their hit song, ‘Raise A Hallelujah.’ The words to this beautiful single came to couple after their friends’ two-year-old son became ill and had to be airlifted to intensive care.


“I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me”

The video description describes the powerful inspiration for the song. “‘Raise A Hallelujah’ was written for Bethel Music CEO Joel Taylor’s son, Jaxon, who was hospitalized with life-threatening E-coli virus. Worship leaders and friends Jonathan and Melissa Helser received news one night that the Taylors didn’t think Jaxon would make it. The couple began to pray, and out of their intercession came this melody, ‘I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies. I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief.’”

After writing the melody, Jonathan sent the music to Jaxon’s dad who played it in the hospital for the young boy.

“I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!”

Miraculously, Jaxon started to come out of his dire state and recover. Now, these touching words are inspiring hearts all over the world.

What a beautiful way to give praise to our Lord and remind ourselves of all our many blessings.
