‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’ Becomes Anthem for Hong Kong Protests
Even though only a small percentage Hong Kong’s citizens profess to be Christian, numerous online videos have captured crowds singing “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” on the streets in recent months among protests against a bill that some fear would extradite residents to Communist China. The protests — and singing — have continued as the calls have broadened into a wider demand for democracy in the region.

Concerns have also been raised over how the move might affect Christians. Believers currently have freedom under the Hong Kong Bill of Rights, but if China encroaches upon the territory, those liberties could be eroded. Christians in China are increasingly persecuted and oppressed, and do not have religious freedom.

“We fear that Christians in Hong Kong will suffer the same fate as Christians in mainland China,” one pastor stated, according to First Things, “with our churches being burnt down, ...

It helps prove the point that this is an entirely Christian-focused story, whereas everyone else in the news business, does not see it, or does not want to make it public.
And I think most people are not too interested in this issue anyway, so they are not going to be out looking up websites for the Christian point of view.

I know it's a Christian News site, but World magazine has an excellent reputation and has been reporting about this hymn being part of the protests since June. This article includes a picture of people singing and someone holding up a sign that says "Sing Hallelujah to the Lord":

They've done numerous on the ground interviews and recently posted this timeline that has links to some of their previous reporting:

Hope that helps!

Interesting that even ABC in Australia had nothing about the singing of a hymn as part of this protest.
I saw the Japanese network NHK's program, Newsroom Tokyo, today and they have nothing about the hymn singing or a religious aspect to the protest.
Have you seen your local news reports on this issue include the hymn or any religious aspect?
Have you seen any national news, whether ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, MSNBC, or any other networks or websites (besides Christian ones) include this hymn singing or religious aspect to the protests?
It almost makes me think this is a 'Fake News' story.

The five demands:

•The complete withdrawal of the extradition bill from Hong Kong's Legislative Council
•The withdrawal of the 'riot' characterisation of protesters on June 12
•The unconditional release of all arrested protesters
•The formation of an independent commission of inquiry into police behaviour
•Universal suffrage....

excerpt from, (Hong Kong's Carrie Lam announces formal withdrawal of controversial extradition bill)

I wonder if this will calm things down?

Burning down streets, fighting with your local police force will only test and make 1.5 billion people decide,” we’re done with these hooligans, send in the tanks and hose off the streets when you’re done. “
I’m afraid that unless, you can articulate on the world stage your grievances, you do not win the day.

Have you seen CNN or MSNBC or any national TV networks report this? A friend who watches the Japanese network NHK online also tells me that they have not mentioned any singing going on.

For their is no King but Christ Alone, as their is no mediator outside of Christ Alone. Rejoice, hallelujah, praises to the Lord amen!

Silenced for 31 years, but praise is to no King but Christ Alone amen

PS 28:7-8 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth, and with my song will I praise Him. The Lord is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed.

PS 18:2-3 The Lord is my rock & my fortress & my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, & the horn of my salvation, & my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

A fitting read of persecuted pastor preaching his first sermon after 31 years in n’t being able to speak!!

Neil and JAG,

Thanks to both of you for your comments and agreement. I think the below applies. The Lord knows and is in control.

Matthew 13:30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

I get you too. The Double Standard you identified may be borne of wishful thinking. I have the same concerns about Mideast persecution: Are these folks truly our brothers in Christ, or are they merely sacerdotal traditionalists whose time has run out? Maybe God is judging them for unbelief (and we're next)!

And even with the sort of people you and I may rub shoulders with every Sunday, the injustice and lack of conscience I've seen makes me wonder if they are truly indwelt by the Holy Spirit. It's not the imperfection, but the lack of repentance that's the problem.

So it's a whole bunch of non-believers singing about something that they don't have the slightest clue about...

Excellent points Frank.👍

This comment will sound divisive, but it is not my intent.

The problem I see with this is these people protesting will be thought of as being part of the body of Christ. Anyone who names the name of Christ is thought of by the world as being a genuine part of His body. Of course we know that isn’t true. So, when some priest molests someone, the world thinks that a Christian did the molestation. When protesters use the Lord’s name, then the same thing happens. And of course we could go on and on.

These things result in the dummying down of the gospel and our relationship to our Lord and Savior is judged by the world by things of this nature.

Daniel 7:13-14
[13]I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
[14]And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

I don't see how as Americans we can't but sympathize with the young people of Hong Kong 👍
Sophie McNeill wrote:
For these Hongkongers this is a battle of freedom versus authoritarian rule.
In many ways, Hong Kong resembles a city in open rebellion.

What started as a protest against a proposed new law, which would see people extradited from Hong Kong to mainland China to face Beijing-style justice, has now turned into a battle for the future of Hong Kong....
They fear Hong Kong could end up like China’s province of Xinjiang — where more than one million Uyghurs have been rounded up and put in detention or forced labour.

“If Hong Kong and the movement now fails, Hong Kong would become a city like Xinjiang. Because in their eyes, Hong Kong people are like kind of foreigners. They have those so-called extremist thoughts,” said Tom.

“They will send our children to school and brainwash them with nationalism. And people who say something that is opposite to the country will be banned or be put in jail.”...
