'Raise A Hallelujah' Jonathan David Helser And Melissa Helser From Bethel

Jonathan Helser and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music share the powerful story behind ‘Raise A Hallelujah’ along with a live performance.


The words to the song came to couple after their friends’ two-year-old son was airlifted to intensive care. The bad news continued to spread as Jonathan and Melissa received word that young Jaxon wasn’t expected to live through the night.

When hopes of a miracle started to disappear, Jonathan was hit with words straight form the heart.

“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”

Jonathan continued to incredible story saying, “We sent a text message of this song to Jaxon's dad and He played it over Jaxon while he was laying in the hospital. Within the next few weeks we saw a miracle and Jaxon fully recovered and he is alive and well now. This song has now become an anthem of victory for the way God fights for us when we raise our hearts and our song to Him.”

“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!”

When we open our hearts to God, we see His miraculous power and strength rise up. Little Jaxon experienced God’s healing hand and, now, his story has turned into an inspirational song for the entire world to lift their voices too.
