From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:
  1. a shout or song of praise to God
From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Halleluiah \Hal`le*lu"iah\, Hallelujah \Hal`le*lu"jah\, n. &
      interj. [Heb. See {Alleluia}.]
      Praise ye Jehovah; praise ye the Lord; -- an exclamation used
      chiefly in songs of praise or thanksgiving to God, and as an
      expression of gratitude or adoration. --Rev. xix. 1 (Rev.
      Ver. )
               So sung they, and the empyrean rung With Hallelujahs.
               In those days, as St. Jerome tells us,[bd]any one as he
               walked in the fields, might hear the plowman at his
               hallelujahs.[b8]                                    --Sharp.

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      praise ye Jehovah, frequently rendered "Praise ye the LORD,"
      stands at the beginning of ten of the psalms (106, 111-113, 135,
      146-150), hence called "hallelujah psalms." From its frequent
      occurrence it grew into a formula of praise. The Greek form of
      the word (alleluia) is found in Rev. 19:1, 3, 4, 6.

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Hallelujah, praise the Lord
