Hymn Story: Revelation Song
Revelation Song is adapted from Revelation 5. The song was written by Jennie Lee Riddle.
It was first released on May 5, 2009 on the album Fearless by Phillips, Craig and Dean.
Band member Randy Phillips explained why the trio recorded the song:
“This song captures the moment of looking up into Heaven, peeling back the curtain of eternity so we can peek in. If you keep your eyes on the Dow Jones or nuclear weapons in North Korea, you’ll always be nervous. Look to the awesomeness of God instead.”
The song won a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year in 2010.
It has also been recorded by Newsboys, Kari Jobe and other groups.
