This painting is based on the song “Raise A Hallelujah” by Bethel Music. It has the most beautiful backstory which you can listen to here. The child being held by his father in this video is the little boy, Jackson, that is mentioned at the beginning of the video.
In the face of our greatest enemy - fear, doubt, death, sickness, grief - our greatest weapon is a melody of worship.
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
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!
