Representative Text

1 Go with Elijah to Carmel, brother,
There is dearth in all the plain.
Stay in the valley no longer, brother,
For the Lord has promised rain.

Pray on and never grow weary,
Waiting, waiting for the promised rain;
Pray on and never grow weary,
Watching, praying, watching, praying
For the gracious rain.

2 Pray on the summit of Carmel, brother,
Hiding from the world away.
Plead there with God for His people, brother,
For the showers of blessing pray. [Refrain]

3 Watch from the summit of Carmel, brother,
Watch for clouds thro’ the sky be clear.
Watch while you pray for the coming showers,
Watch, for God your prayers will hear. [Refrain]

4 Hark! to a voice from the mountains, brother,
Waiting in the dusty plain.
Run to the people with tidings, brother,
There’s a sound of abundant rain. [Refrain]
