A Revelation Song

December 3, 2009

This past weekend, my wife and I had the privilege of going to LifeChurch.tv in Edmond, OK. Of course we loved it. Marcy Priest led and as always did an amazing job. One of my favorite things is getting to hear other people lead worship. Not only is it a nice break to just be in the middle of it all sometimes instead of leading, but it’s also a great way to hear new songs. Marcy did a song called Revelation Song recorded by Kim Walker and written by Jennie Lee Riddle. Loved it! I have no idea how I haven’t heard it before. It’s such a great song. Then throw Kim Walker in the mix and it is freakin’ outstanding! My favorite part of the song is the driving bridge (surprise surprise) that simply says “Be my Everything“. I love it. How many times do we need God to be our everything? But how many times do we actually let Him be our everything.

Read the lyrics. Go get the song. Worship your Everything.

worthy is the Lamb who was slain
holy, holy is He
sing a new song to Him who sits on
heaven’s mercy seat

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

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

filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
at the mention of Your name
Jesus, Your name is Power, Breath, and Living Water
such a marvelous mystery

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

be my Everything, be my Everything
be my Everything, be my Everything

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

    Yeah, how in the world have you never heard that song??? It’s one I use very often. In fact, its the one song that people ask me to do on the rare occasion I lead.

    You’re right about the lyrics though… There is SO much power in those words. Everytime I use this song, a different phrase of the song sticks out, and I am touched by it’s meaning.

    Another great thing about it (besides the amazing lyrics), is that it uses the same four chords throughout the song, making it easy to just play under the Holy Spirit’s leading and transition freely from what part of the song to the next. I’ve heard several versions of the song by different artists, and no one does it the same. Yet they are all great.

    If I ever get the chance to record a CD, I guarantee this song will be on it.

    KK – You are right. I have heard the song before. I didn’t remember that until I listened to it again by Christ For The Nations. I remember you playing it for me when we drove past the CFTN building in Dallas one time. You are correct. It apparently just never clicked in my head. But I love the song. Apparently several others do as well. Maybe we should start doing it too.

    And yes, I do like stuff that you listen to (not all but a good bit)!

    J – Thanks for the video! It’s always cool to hear where the songs come from. I love that she wrote it in response to everything being “us” focused and not God focused.
