Can one use the verb "to chant" in this way?

Can one say, for example, that the Hare Krishnas chant Krishna, meaning that they celebrate him in song? Note the absence of quotation marks: I do not mean to ask whether one can say that the Hare Krishnas chant "Krishna" (i.e., the name Krishna).

    It works grammatically, but if you want to be understood, I would suggest saying "to Krishna" or "Krishna, in order to celebrate/praise him"
