God of Elijah – Disciple

Bring on the show down
How long will you waver between two opinions
If the Lord is God, follow Him
But if Baal is god, follow him.

There are 450 prophets of Baal and just one of me
So it should be no problem to get his attention
And show everyone here today
If he’s the real god
He’ll have to send fire down.

So they began to shout, run around, cut themselves
Baal made no reply, so Elijah cried,
“Well maybe he’s sleeping, or busy, or traveling
Or using the bathroom, or deeply thinking.”

God of Elijah, send Your fire!
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down!

God of Elijah!

So Elijah took twelve stones
Representin’ the twelve tribes
And built an altar of sacrifice
And dug up a trench and cut up a bull
And placed it on the wood
And poured four jars of water all around
He said do it again and then do it a third time
Until the whole sacrifice had been soaked down
Water rolled out of the trenches, and Elijah prayed,

“Lord God of Israel let it be known today
That You are God and I pray You answer
And turn their hearts back to You again
Let the fire fall and burn it all
Let it rain down!”

God of Elijah, send Your fire!
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down!

God of Elijah! God of Elijah!

Lord God of Elijah let it be known today
That You are God; I pray You answer
And turn our hearts back to You again
Let the fire fall and burn it all
Let it rain down!
