People & Songs, a unique collective of songwriters, worship leaders, and artists founded and operated by Jennie Lee Riddle, recently released a new version of Jennie's worship hit "Revelation Song." In addition to the fresh recording, the song celebrates a milestone as it turns twenty this year and has been a constant on CCLI's Top 20 for over a decade.

The iPhone recording of the rehearsal for People & Songs' version already has over 30 million views on Facebook. "'Revelation Song' has traveled far and wide and has been on the lips of millions of saints carried by artists we all know and love. It has been recorded multiple dozens of times, won awards, 'gone gold,' and found its way into hymnals. The Holy Spirit carried it like wind. Now He has carried it to the hearts and mouths of those I love as my very own children," Jennie reflects in a post with WorshipFuel
 


"I will never forget the day I wrote that song. I remember telling the Lord that day that I was tired of songs that focused on "me" and asked Him if we could write something that was all about Him; something that filled my eyes, our eyes, with Jesus. The Holy Spirit suggested we write the two passages that had mesmerized me into song; Revelation 4 and Ezekiel 1. I did not know what to name it, and so I wrote what we now know as the title at the top of my notes to remind me to find a real title. I remember the Lord saying He would carry 'Revelation Song' across the earth. I thought this possibly meant my missionary friends would teach it while out in the field. God always means what He says. His words echo long and wide. He asked if He could have it. I said yes. And He gave it to the Church. I never could have imagined the trajectory and scope the Lord had in mind," she continues.

"This version that People & Songs has released has made it new all over again for me. It is the most honoring and special thing I could imagine in all the world. I didn't ask for it, it was a gift. It gives me fresh vision to see Jesus with all over again as I see Him through the eyes of those I love. I'm truly overwhelmed by God's faithfulness," Jennie says of the new version recorded live at the first annual "Turn Up The Lights" festival at their headquarters in LaPorte, IN. 

The song, led by People & Songs artists Melanie Tierce, Sean Carter, Crystal Yates, Kevin Jones, Ryan Kennedy, May Angeles, Charity Gayle and Kaden Slay, can be found on iTunes here
