Mighty Revelation / All Over the World

This Pentecost hymn is today listed as © 1984 Thankyou Music and attributed to Roy Turner.

But it is not totally clear if this is correct:  Books published earlier than 1984 which include the song - without an attribution to Turner - include:
The song was sung by the Scottish evangelist Cameron Family, who appear to have toured with it in the 1960s and 1970s (ref).  Roy Turner was part of this family (apparently an in-law).  

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.

Recording by the Cameron family:


All 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 ...

  1. It was Roy Turner without a doubt! He testified this at the Zion Tabernacle in Peterhead in the early 60's.

  2. My name is Roy Turner and I am the COMPOSER of the hymn ‘ALL OVER THE WORLD THE SPIRIT IS MOVNG, And I am the copyright owner. There is no reason to suggest, as above, that the authorship is in doubt. Your inaccurate statement, casting doubt on the attribution to me is incorrect. Please change your attribution and enter the correct detail. ‘Composed by Roy Turner’. Thank you,

  3. On your website you cast doubt on myself ... Roy Turner ... as composer of the hymn ‘ALL OVER THE WORLD THE SPIRIT IS MOVING’ . I am the composer and copyright- owner of this composition. To suggest otherwise in the statements you make about the authorship is misleading, inaccurate and a dis-service to me personally.

    I ask you to alter your attribution and remove the suggestion that there is doubt of composer or that I borrowed or shared from other sources.

    I await confirmation confirmation that this will be rectified.


    Roy Turner. (Aka. ‘MINSTRELSURFER’ .... my YouTube channel.)

  4. Enter your comment...so glad to know the composer of the song

  5. This song was composed by Roy Turner...maybe the confusion was that the recordings were made under the Cameron Family and Roy Turner....and several groups traveling as the Cameron Family were singing Roy’s songs
