    1. Out on the Isle of Patmos, thereís not too much to do,
    Just work down in the salt mines, until the day is through;
    Just blood and sweat and labor, until the bodyís spent,
    Into this situation, Olí Brother John was sent.

    2. So there he was in exile, upon this little rock,
    And silenced by the soldiers, he was sure to rot;
    For he had been so faithful, to preach the holy Word,
    And with his testimony, the Gospel truth was heard.

    Chorus 1: Yet Iíll praise Him, Hallelujah!
    Hallelujah to His name!
    In my trials and affliction,
    I will praise His holy name.

    3. Now it was on the Lordís Day, Olí John would testify,
    His spirit was transported, so far above the skies;
    Caught up into the heavens, unto the throne of God,
    John saw the Lord Most Holy, in wonder and in awe.

    Chorus 2: Holy! Holy! Worthy! Worthy!
    Hallelujah to His name!
    Holy! Holy! Worthy! Worthy!
    Worthy the Lamb that was slain!

    4. He saw the Lord of Glory, Whom angel hosts attend,
    Sing "Holy! Holy! Holy!" Their praises never end;
    All heaven joins together, to bow before the King
    To join the celebration, Oh, hear the song they sing!

    Chorus 2: Holy! Holy! Worthy! Worthy!
    Hallelujah to His name!
    Holy! Holy! Worthy! Worthy!
    Worthy the Lamb that was slain!

    Chorus 3: Power and glory and honor, Praises and riches and wisdom,
    Join in the celebration to His name!
    Bow down in worship before Him! Hallelujah to His  great name,
    Shout hallelujah to the Kings of kings.
