Did you that the use of this word is held in at least three religions at the conclusion of a prayer or a response to a prayer.

Matthew West has a song called Amen. Here is part of the lyrics.

If you’re feeling what I’m feeling
Let me hear you say amen
If you’re a new creation, amen
If you got that feel good in your soul
That hope that won’t let you go
If you’re feeling what I’m feeling
Let me hear you say amen

Amen by Matthew West

Lyrics to Micah Taylor’s song

Amen [3x]Oh Amen
When I think
About where I would have been without You
I’m so glad
It’s a place I never have to be
Even if I tried I couldn’t count the ways
Not enough words for me to ever say
Just how good, how good
You are to me
How could I hide this joy inside of me
Amazing grace, oh Lord, how can it be
Every day of my life I want the world to see I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me
You got me singing like

Amen [3x]Oh Amen
What You did
Has given me a hope forever
What You do
Has shown me you will never leave
Even if I tried I couldn’t count the ways
Not enough words for me to ever say
Just how good, how good
You are to me
How could I hide this joy inside of me
Amazing grace, oh Lord, how can it be
Every day of my life I want the world to see I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me
You got me singing like [Amen 3x]

Oh Amen

I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me
That’s why I gotta sing I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me
That’s why I gotta sing
Every mountain
Every valley
Ever since the day
You found me I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me

That’s why I gotta sing amen
How could I hide this joy inside of me
Amazing grace, oh Lord, how can it be
Every day of my life I want the world to see I can’t get over what
You’ve done for me
You got me singing like [Amen 3x]Oh [Amen 4x]Oh Amen

آمين (Arabic)

In French, German, Italian, Icelandic: Amen.
In Spanish: Amén.

阿门 (Chinese)

So it seems that the word is universally used and said and pronounced very similar.

What does the word mean to you?

Feel free to share in the comments with me what amen means to you. Feel free to share where you are from too.

I don’t know Hebrew or Greek, but I do use Blue Letter Bible to show me the Strong’s meanings of Bible words.
