More than 17,000 Buddies travelled through to the National Stadium to witness their side lift their first major piece of silverware to end a barren 26 years, bringing home the Scottish Communities League Cup for the first time in the club's history.
And Lennon today hailed the heroics of his side in the 3-2 win over Hearts, claiming the community connected with Saints will have a moment to remember forever.
"I have a lot of mixed emotions, it's just sinking in," he said. "It was the people's cup final, great credit to the fans. I'm absolutely delighted that we're bringing the trophy back to the club for the first time in our wonderful 136-year history.
"To give that to the 17,000 fans that supported us, the ones that couldn't make it, and the community of Paisley as well, is fantastic."
"The lift that got us started was getting the players in at half-time," explained the Saints boss. "I got into the players and reminded them that if they wanted to become legends, they must play a game of football."
"There was a wee bit of emotion, a little bit of raised voices, some comforting words. But, most importantly, I reminded them these opportunities don't come round very often.
"Some players will play their full career and will never get the opportunity to go to Hampden and feature in a final. I told them to make it a day to remember. They have given everyone associated with our wonderful football club a memory to cherish for the rest of their lives."
