All The People Said Amen by Matt Maher

Today’s Strong Worship Song is All the People Said Amen by Matt Maher from the album of the same title.  I have listened to Matt Maher for many years. His lyrics show that he has a love for both God’s people and God’s word. In addition, his strong lyrics are played in an acoustical style that is enjoyable and fun to sing.  In this song Matt covers the total depravity of man, the commonality of sin, the forgiveness and mercy of God to save sinners, the community of the church, and God’s love.

Scriptural references include Hebrews 13:5, Psalm 118:6, Luke 12:32, John 14:27, Psalm 107:1, Psalm 118:1, Psalm 136:1, Proverbs 22:2, John 3:16, and Matthew 5:3.


All the People Said Amen

You are not alone if you are lonely
When you feel afraid, you’re not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It’s all you got to lean on but thank God it’s all you need

And all the people said Amen
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
At the top of your lungs sing it with me again
And all the people said Amen

Rich or poor it doesn’t matter
Weak or strong, you know love is what we’re after
We’re all broken but we’re all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And He so loved the world He sent His son to save us all

Blessed are the poor in Spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are the people hungry for another start
For theirs is the kingdom, the kingdom of God
