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.
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]
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…!
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,
Filled with wonder,
At the mention of Your Name
Jesus, Your Name is Power
Breath, and Living Water
Such a marvelous mystery
