Stay By the Brook
(Based on 1 Kings Chapter 17)

The Lord sometimes places us by a little lonely brook
He wants us to stay while he sustains us at that nook
God sent the prophet Elijah to his brook for a season
Elijah may have had some doubts about God's reason

God commanded the ravens to feed his servant there
Twice a day they fed him because he was in their care
The water from that little stream must have been so cool
In a place or two I imagine it formed a tranquil pool

After a while the brook shrank and dried up
Elijah had no water for his well worn cup
No rain had fell because Elijah had prayed
Elijah was resting as by the brook he stayed

Then God spoke and gave him a new command
And said get up and go to Zarephath land
A widow woman who lives their will sustain you
Even though she barely has enough to feed two

Elijah obeyed the Lord and went on his way
And with the woman and her son did stay
He performed a miracle and multiplied her oil
She had bread to bake and stew to boil

So you see we must stay by the brook for a time
God will sustain us when we barely have a dime
He knows we need rest when our bodies are weak
So stay by your brook until you hear God speak
