Revell, Alison

Author & Composer

(née Huntley, aka Alison Huntley Revell); named in error as the author-composer of no.695, a popular song from 1978 which several books have included since the 1980s. It was printed as ‘Anon’ in the New Redemption Hymnal and in Junior Praise (both 1986). MP seems to have introduced the name of Revell; ‘Kingsway’ took that as correct and the mistake has multiplied. This was discovered only after the publication of Praise! and EP vol 1. MP also credited a similar text to her, beginning ‘Thank you, Jesus, for your love for me’. Neither the author nor Mrs Revell have yet been traced.
