Additionally, Hallelujah is used 24 times in the Old Testament, all of which are in 15 of the Psalms between Psalm 104-150.

Hosanna: The word hosanna derives from a Hebrew word and is used as two completely different uses. One is to showing gratitude, praise, or joy or simply thanking him. The other use is for pleading for help.
