Revelation Song (Live)

Greetings LoveMusic! listeners!
There have been many worship leaders who have now done Revelation Song. I really didn't know the history of the song, so I looked it up (see below.) I found out it was written by Jennie Lee Riddle before 2009. At that time it was recorded by a group from Christ For The Nations. Soon after Kari Jobe, Phillips, Craig and Dean, Don Moen and others included it on their albums.
Whenever I hear the song my spirit soars. If ever there is a song declaring, proclaiming, worship the Living God, this is one of them.
Worship the Living God of Israel! He alone is to be praised and glorified!
Ahava and shalom,
Love For His People

It was later released by Phillips, Craig and Dean as the first single off Fearless.
