1. Elijah made a sacrifice
To offer to Jehovah;
It had been wet with water thrice,
Baal’s sacrifice was over.
Elijah prayed: the fire came down
And licked the water all around;
So doubting ones believed, and found
Elijah’s God was living.
Elijah’s God still lives today,
To take the guilt of sin away;
And when I pray my heart’s desire,
Upon my soul He sends the fire.
2. Elijah’s God still lives today
And answers still by fire;
My friend, just let Him have His way;
He’ll grant your heart’s desire.
Consume the sacrifice you make,
And bid your slumbering soul awake;
The chains of inbred sin will break;
Elijah’s God is living. [Refrain]
3. Elijah’s God still lives today
And answers still by power,
As when Elijah prayed for rain,
God answered with a shower.
If you would have your soul refreshed
With rain that falls from Heaven,
You must pray through like all the rest,
And showers shall be given. [Refrain]
