We started road-testing Revelation Song by Jenny Lee Riddle tonight.
Mrs mgpcpastor isn’t a fan, but I think we’ll persevere with it for a little while yet.
A song that has been widely covered by lots of Christian singers, (as this list of arrangements at Musicnotes suggests) it seems simple, but as I found out tonight needs a bit of focus by the lead vocalist. (me)
Its verses are more syncopated than I generally like, but the chorus is strong and the thematic styling of praise based on the book of Revelation is strong.
Verse:
Worthy is the, Lamb who was slain
Holy, Holy, is He
Sing a new song, to Him who sits on
Heaven’s Mercy Seat [Repeat]
Chorus:
Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing:
Praise to the King of Kings!
You are my everything,
And I will adore You…!
Verse:
Clothed in rainbows, of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and
Glory and power be
To You the Only Wise King,
Chorus:
Verse:
Filled with wonder,
Awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your Name
Jesus, Your Name is Power
Breath, and Living Water
Such a marvelous mystery
Chorus X 2:
