Revelation Song – Chart Kit – Kari Jobe arrangement


Arrangement: Kari Jobe – Majestic
Keys included: A, B, C, D, E, F, and G
Listen in iTunes

On the album, the song is in D which I would describe as a high female key. For a male lead, use E, F, or G (even A for a high male lead).

This song is in what is called the Myxolydian mode. It actually switches to the Dorian mode during the solo. Basically, this means the chords aren’t the typical chords in the key. The Myxolydian mode uses a flat 7th (instead of a natural 7th), and the Dorian mode adds a flat 3rd (instead of a natural 3rd). In both modes, the 5th is minor rather than major.


Chord Chart kits include both Nashville charts and lyric charts in various keys. Your download will be in the form of a .zip file. Extract the file and you will find two folders, ”Lyric Charts and Nashville Charts”.

    To clarify, the strumming pattern is: d, d, d, u, u, d, d, d, u, u?

      I talk about the strumming pattern at about 1:10 in the video. I think it’s D, D, D-U, U-D, D, D-U

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Hmmm, maybe this song is in G? G feels like the “home” chord to me. It just starts on the “five” chord. And from a music theory pov, all the chords fit G major.

    But whatever, it’s still a good song, and you do a great job on the tutorial. That’s a valuable service you are providing. The key is not really that important.

      Hey Mark!

      I’m pretty sure this is in the key of D. I’ve looked around a bit, and most places I’ve found list this key as D. Ha – I suppose it’s not all that important so long as the chords are right.

      Thanks for writing in!

        Hi Brian,
        This song is actually in the key of G. It begins on the 5th chord (D) of the key G which is why some think it is in the key of D. The Am chord is the clue. If it was in the key of D, the song would have an Em chord.

          Hi Cindy – the key of Revelation Song seems to be hotly debated, ha. According to the author (Jennie Lee Riddle), it’s written in D Mixolydian, which makes sense. In the Mixolydian mode, the 7th is flatted, so in the case of D, the 7th is C#. Because it’s Mixolydian mode, the C# becomes C major, which is found in the song. You could think of it as key of G (G and D Mixolydian are related scales), but the D chord feels like the 1 chord in the song (it’s where the song feels like it resolves). Another cool thing about the version of the song that contains the guitar solo – the solo section goes to Dorian mode, which contains a flattened 3rd.

          Either way, this is all very boring, but I find music theory to be pretty interesting.

    Hello Brian,
    Thanks a lot for the ‘revelation song’ video!
    I just started playing the guitar.
    It is really cool that I can learn to play with a song to worship the Lord.

    Hi Brian, I love this song and cannot sing it without being move to tears every time.

    The chords are great and I need to practice much more before I can lead. My heart is in this song..

    Thank you for the excellent video. BTW, I attend Calvary Chapel South Bay (Steve Mays’ church, Los Angeles)….have you ever heard of Kevin Click? He’s a good friend and another amazing musician.

    Thank you for this great lesson! I’m a beginner and am having problems with learning this strumming pattern; are there any tips or tutorials to help me master it? Aslo which strumming do we accent? The first Down and also there seems to be an accent closer to the end, but I don’t quite catch it.

    • Brian Nov 28, 2015 at 1:54 pm #

      Hi Anastasia,

      This song is slow enough that you can actually accent the 1, 2, 3, and 4 if you want, but I’d land more on 1 and 3 personally.

    Hie Brian. But when strumming using the pattern DDDUUDDDU won’t you be change too early….like when counting 1 &2 a3 &4e don’t need one more strum for either & or a to change to the next chord .thanks
