Through Explanation you See the Lyrics in a New Light
Been traveling in packs that I can't carry anymoreWaiting for somebody else to carry meThere's nothing that's left for me at my doorAll the people I knew aren't who they used to beAnd if I try to change my life for one dayThere would be nobody else to saveAnd I can't change into a person I don't wanna beSo, oh, it's Saturday night
I pray for the wicked on the weekendMama, can I get another amen?Oh, oh, it's Saturday nightSwear to God, I ain't ever gonna repentMama, can I get another amen?Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah
Every morning when I wake upI wanna be who I couldn't say I've ever beenBut it's so much more than I ever wasIf every night I go to sleep knowingThat I gave everything that I had to giveThen it's all I could've ask forI've been standing up aside everything I've ever said, butOh, it's Saturday night
If I had one more day to wishIf I had one more day to be better than I could have ever beenIf I had one more day to wishIf I had one more day I could be better, but, babyOh, it's Saturday night
I pray for the wicked on the weekendMama, can I get another amen?Oh, oh, it's Saturday nightSwear to God, I ain't ever gonna repentMama, can I get another amen?Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeahIt's Saturday, Saturday, SaturdayOh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeahSwear to God, swear to God, swear to GodOh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah

The religious title is deceptive, because actually Say Amen is about the transition to a new lifestyle. For the narrator, the tradition in which he grew up no longer feels good and right. Also the people in his environment have changed. He does not want to become a person he does not like. Therefore, he gives up earlier traditions and continues to evolve.
Religious rhetoric is confronted with a secular reality, following the tradition of Saturday night. While Saturday night is not explicitly described, the connotations of that word are party, drinking, exuberance. His new mantra of faith is that as long as he is able to "sleep knowing that I gave everything that I had to give" then it really is "all I could've ask for". These values are more important for him.
