Revelation 19:1, 4, 6 “After these things I heard, as it were, a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, ‘Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God’…And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne saying, “Amen Hallelujah!.....And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude and as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, ‘Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.’”
When we enter into heaven, we will hear; the voice of a great multitude, waters,
and much thundering of: Hallelujah, Praise Ye The Lord”.
