From the moment man first disobeyed the Father
We were then held captive by our sin
The law of God demanded a sacrifice
Restoring to Himself His own again

So the Lamb,
His only Son was freely offered
Atonement for our sins forever made
The innocent and holy still God and God only
Would ransom and redeems us back again

Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
My heart sings his Praise again
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb

So to the cross they carried him
With all our guilt and all our sin
The lamb of God was slain for our transgressions
And on the cross those nail pierced hands
Reached up to God and down to man
And just as if I'd never sinned
He took me in his arms
Embracing me He willingly forgave

For mercy, grace, and love that knows no bounds
Though guilty and condemned I now am free
Forever I'm forgiven for Christ the Lord is risen
And risen with Him we shall one day be

Oh, Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
My heart sings his Praise again
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb

Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
My heart sings His Praise again
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb

Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
My heart sings his Praise again
Hallelujah Praise the Lamb
Praise the Lamb

    You know, the best thing about this song (and others in the Southern Gospel genre,) is this: Nobody needs to ask what it "means." The answer is in the song itself. The meaning is implicit, and can be explicitly discerned from a simple reading of the lyrics, or hearing the song performed. The words of the verses are a poetic paraphrase of the Salvation Plan, so familiar to those who have read the Bible. The reason why God sent His Son, Jesus to bring a world of lost people back to their Creator is clearly expressed, as well as the gospel message of how Jesus accomplished this mission through His death on Calvary, as the sacrificial "Lamb of God." The inspired lyricists who composed this beautiful song were very thorough in developing the stream of consciousness toward the crescendo of emotion embodied in the song's refrain: "Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!" I emphasize this song's crystal clear meaning, in contrast with many other popular "Praise & Worship" choruses, which (sadly,) lack the depth, and consequently, cannot hold a candle to the classic Hymns of the church. Amid the soupy miasma which passes for Christian music these days, this song emerges, a triumphant, unapologetic masterpiece of biblical truth, which, like "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" is worthy to survive another 400 years, another anthem of the Christian Faith.

    The actual meaning of "hallelujah, praise the lamb" is meant for us to always place our faith, not religious acts, in jesus christ and what he did for us at calvary. He is the lamb of god. (john 1:29 kjv)
