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.

Refrain:
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]
