Revelation Song was released by contemporary Christian group Phillips, Craig and Dean on May 5, 2009 as the lead single from their album Fearless. Their version quickly gained popularity, reaching No. 1 on Billboards Hot Christian Songs chart in August 2009, and No. 31 on Billboard 's Heatseekers Songs. It was the longest-running No. 1 song in any format on Christian radio in 2009. In all, it spent over 15 weeks atop the Billboard 's Hot Christian Adult Contemporary chart, and No. 11 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart.
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.
