Jennie Lee RiddLe is your everyday mom with
kids, dinners to make and a house to take care
of. Oh yeah… and she’s an award-winning
songwriter. This year, she took home top
songwriting honors at the Dove Awards for
her anthem, “Revelation Song,” carried to the
masses by Kari Jobe and Phillips Craig and Dean.
Backstage at the Doves, she shares with CCM
editor, Caroline Lusk, what the song, the moment
and the message mean to her.
CCM: Did you ever dream about winning an award for
Jannie: I never thought to dream that. But what I did
dream is that I would see men from every nation bowing
down before the throne in my lifetime.
That was a lyric from a song that I heard when I first
came to Jesus and it just became a decade long prayer. I
wanted to see men from every nation bowing down before
the throne. And on that day with my baby changed and my
spaghetti cooking, I said Lord I want to write a song that has
every man… every rock, tree… every bit of creation bowing
down worshipping. And He reminded me of His own words
out of Revelation and Ezekiel… the picture that paints
them so beautifully. And I wrote it!
