"Revelation Song" by Kari Jobe

I'm fascinated by the worship that is going on in the throne room.

Anyone who has ever discussed worship songs with me will know that I like my worship lyrics simple, biblical, and focused on who God is and so I'm a big fan of “Revelation Song” by Kari Jobe.  

Revelation 4 sets out a description of the throne room. I'm sure that what John saw was beyond human comprehension, and that our language is inadequate to describe it. He describes four living creatures worshipping God – never ceasing, day or night, to sing these words: 

 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”  

He also speaks of twenty-four elders saying: 

 “Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honour and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”  

So Revelation Song does two things that I love in worship. First, it focuses me on how awesome (in the literal sense of the word) God is. Second, it joins in the song of Heaven – the song that never ceases in the throne room. When we sing about the holiness of God, we are joining with the living creatures and the elders, and indeed with believers throughout creation, in this anthem of worship that rises to the throne.  

As you listen to this song today, I encourage you to meditate on the majesty of the throne room and the holiness of God.
