Revelation 19:5
"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God,
all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great."

          Often in a rev'rent time we say "amen";
          And when our hearts are joyful, "hallelujahs" ring again,
          In old camp meetings on the grass or temples built by men,
          A saint shouts "hallelujah" and we all join in.

            Chorus
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen,
            I'll praise the Lord and then I'll praise Him again -
            Sharing the love of Jesus with all men
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen.

          We say "hallelujah"; that means "praise the Lord."
          And "amen" simply tells us that our hearts are in accord.
          So if you feel restricted, strike a brand new chord,
          Let's all agree together now to praise the Lord.

            Chorus
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen,
            I'll praise the Lord and then I'll praise Him again -
            Sharing the love of Jesus with all men
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen.

          Don't you be embarrassed now to say "amen,"
          And don't you ever hesitate to join right in.
          If you can't praise the Savior now, you'll be embarrassed then
          When we sing "hallelujah" and the angels say "amen."

            Chorus
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen,
            I'll praise the Lord and then I'll praise Him again -
            Sharing the love of Jesus with all men
            From the first hallelujah to the last amen.
