Background

Band member Randy Phillips explained why the trio recorded the song:

“This song captures the moment of looking up into Heaven, peeling back the curtain of eternity so we can peek in. If you keep your eyes on the Dow Jones or nuclear weapons in North Korea, you’ll always be nervous. Look to the awesomeness of God instead.”[1]

Release

Revelation Song was released by contemporary Christian group Phillips, Craig and Dean on May 05, 2009 as the lead single from their album Fearless. Their version quickly gained popularity, reaching number 1 on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart in August 2009[2], and #31 on Billboard's Heatseekers Songs.
