This song emphasizes God's many names and titles, most of which were originally given in Hebrew. This was lost in most translations of Scripture, especially where the Lord's Hebrew Holy Name was replaced by the all-caps title, LORD. These Names are the ones the Israelites
and Jesus's family and disciples called the Lord by. They spoke Hebrew, Aramaic and Ancient Greek - the original languages of the Bible. Also remember that Jesus is the English translation of the Lord's Name and was not a language in Jesus' time (Learn more about it in the About section below).

It generally does not matter how we pronounce God's Names or their many translations, but I like to use His Hebrew Names because they were the first given and Christians have lost their sense of heritage with the Jews. We are one People under Christ with the Jews (Ephesians 2:11-22,3:6; Galatians 3:26-29; 1 Peter 2:9-10) and should know that heritage and God's actual Names as they were given.

About The Hebrew Names and Titles
In general it does not matter how we pronounce the Hebrew since there are different dialects and linguistic variations. The suggested pronunciations are given in quotes and taken from common, modern dialects.

Pronunciation Key:
   'ah' is the A sound, as in fah and lah
   'ay' is the long A sound, as in hay and say
   'e' or 'eh' is the short E sound, as in peck and heck
   'ee' is the long E sound, as in see and bee
   'i' or 'ih' is the short I sound, as in pick and sick
   'yy' is the long I sound, as in bye and eye
   'oh' is the long O sound, as in woe and glow
   'oo' is the long OO, as in flu, shoe and moon
   'uh' is the short U sound, as in muck, run and much
  • Avinu "Ah-vee-noo" (Father)
  • Avinu Elohim "Ah-vee-noo El-oh-heem" (Father Mighty God) - see Elohim
  • Adonai "Ah-dahn-nyy" (Lord)
  • Adonai Yehovah "Ah-dahn-nyy Yah-hoh-vah" (Lord Jehovah) - see Yehovah
  • El "El" (God)
  • El Elyon "El El-yohn" (God Most High)
  • El Olam "El Oh-lahm" (Everlasting God)
  • El Shaddai "El Shah-dyy" (God Almighty)
  • Elohim "El-oh-heem" (Mighty God)
  • Elyon "El-yohn" (Most High)
  • HaMashiach "Hah-Mah-shee-ahk" (Christ/The Christ - The Messiah or Anointed One)
  • HaShem "Hah-Shehm/Hah-Shim" (The Name)
  • Jehovah "Jeh-hoh-vah/Jah-hoh-vah" - the English pronunciation of Yehovah uses the J sound; there is no J sound in Hebrew; see Yehovah
  • Jesus "Jee-zuhs" - the English pronunciation of Yehoshua/Yeshua; it comes from the translation of the Latin, Iesus, which came from the Greek, Iēsous/Ιēςους/Ιησους/Iesoua, which in turn came from the transliteration of the Hebrew, Yehoshua/Yeshua (the Hebrew for Joshua - יְהוֹשֻׁעַ), into Greek; this layered translation came about because the New Testament was originally mostly written in Greek and then translated into Latin and then into English; it is interesting to note that the Old English gematria values for Jesus and Joshua are both 444, which puts a stamp of authenticity for the two names being the same; see Yehoshua for more
  • Olam "Oh-lahm" (Everlasting)
  • Ruach HaKodesh "Roo-ahk Hah-Koh-desh/Hah-Koh-dish" (Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost)
  • Shaddai "Shah-dyy" (Almighty/Most Powerful)
  • Yehoshua / Yeshua "Yeh-hoh-shoo-ah/Yeh-shoo-ah" (Jesus/Yeshu/Joshua) - The Lord's Hebrew Name in Christ, The Son; it means Yah/Yehovah saves or Yah/Yehovah is salvation; Joshua is the same name as Yehoshua or Jesus; the difference came from transliteration or translation from different languages; Joshua is the English translation of the Hebrew Yehoshua/Yeshua (יְהוֹשֻׁעַ), while Jesus came from the English translation of the Latin and Greek translations of the Hebrew (see Jesus above); it's interesting to note that both Joshua and Jesus have the same Old English gematria value of 444, which means absolute/infinite hope (see The Meaning Of Numbers); it puts God's stamp of authenticity on the translation process of coming to the name of Jesus since He has detailed control over our languages; I also prefer Yehoshua for the pronunciation of the Lord's Hebrew Name in Christ since it is likely what Jesus was called by when He was a man;
  • Yehoshua HaMashiach "Yeh-hoh-shoo-ah Hah-Mah-shee-ahk" (Jesus Christ) - see Yehoshua and HaMashiach
  • Yah / Yehovah "Yah / Yeh-hoh-vah" (Jehovah/Yahweh/Yahveh/Yahuah/Yahuwah - The Lord's Proper Holy Name as Father; Yah is its short form; it means The Existing One or Self Existing One; the Hebrew is also called the Tetragrammaton (יהוה YHWH/YHVH); this Name was often replaced in Bible translations with the all-caps title, LORD; Yehovah is pronounced with a J sound for Jehovah in English; many Jews don't wish to use or pronounce this Holy Name and use Adonai (Lord) instead because of a sense of reverence; they also spell God as G-d out of similar reverence, but I believe these tendencies are overly religious; God gave His Holy Names and never told us to not use them; the following Scripture actually use His Hebrew Holy Name in the original Hebrew and they note God wants us to remember His Holy Name:

    "God, furthermore, said to Moses, 'Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘Yehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My Name forever, and this is My Memorial-Name (Name to be remembered) to all generations." (Exodus 3:15)

    "I am Yehovah, that is My Name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images." (Isaiah 42:8)

    "For I am Yehovah your God, Who stirs up the sea and its waves roar - the Lord of Hosts is His Name." (Isaiah 51:15)
