    Hi, I was wondering what language the song Tehillah is in. It sounds Native American but I have no idea what tribe. This is a truly beautiful song and I hope you can tell me the language. Thank you, Susan Martin

      I’m so glad you’ve been blessed by this song, Susan. It’s been one of my most popular. When I wrote and sang “Tehillah” for the first time, it was a spontaneous song the Lord was giving me as I was on my way to perform a concert at a church in San Antonio, Texas. It is interesting that the lyrics, and the music, have a Native American sound and feel because I feel it is a song of intercession and/or worship. The word tehillah comes from the Hebrew meaning “praise, song or hymn of praise” and is used in Psalm 40:3 where it says, “And He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise (tehillah) unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”
