But it is not totally clear whether Turner wrote the song, or simply collected it and released a recording: Earlier books where it was published without an attributed to Turner include:
- Songs of Praise (Scripture in Song, Auckland, New Zealand, 1973)
- 20th Century Folk Hymnal Vol 4 (Kevin Mayhew Ltd, England 1978)
- Let's Just Praise the Lord - 1978 ( Community Church, Maadi, Egypt).
Many different variations have been used in later verses, including: All over this room... All over us all... All over our school ..., etc. Other adaptations can be made as needed.
Also, there are number of slight variations in the tune which is in common use.

LyricsAll over the world, the Spirit is moving,
All over the world, as the prophet said it would be;
All over the world, there's a mighty revelation,
Of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
All over the land ...
All over the Church ...
Deep down in my heart ...
