There are some songs you play in the background that you may hum along with. There are some songs that make you move as if the beat were connected to your feet by a string. And then there are some songs that demand your attention and take you somewhere... someplace Holy. Revelation Song is that kind of song for me.
It's so special to my husband, Gary, and I that when we chose songs for our wedding ceremony, we had to pick this one.
The message of the song is pure worship and adoration of Christ and comes right out of scripture. A picture of worship in heaven. I don't know about you, but I need it! So many songs have lyrics that share human feelings and struggles and those are special and precious but nothing so fills me up and helps me like when I can just focus on Him.
Gary says don't judge how he's worshipping by how he looks or sounds when this song is played. While some have their hands raised and sing with all their might, he is so moved that he can barely sing at all. He needs it too.
I think deep down we all need to be taken someplace where all of our struggles and concerns are swallowed up by 'Great Love.' It's rare that I can be blissfully lost in a vision of the Lamb that was slain for me. I'll take every moment this song gives me.
