Elijah

Elijah

Let me go, Lord, just let me go.
I’ve failed my call, I’m finished
And done, there’s no one left
But me, dear Lord.

The prophet, Elijah, grieved long...
Under the shade of a juniper tree,
The solemn weight of his holy calling
Casting the Tishbite down.

Great power on Carmel, great power
Displayed. Was my faith so weak
To flee, after all...
From the Queen of the wicked ones?

Elijah had crushed the prophets of Baal,
Beating their best, commanding fire
From the heavens—flames from
The sky.

The moment of triumph had finally come:
“The Lord, He is God!” my people declared,
“The Lord, He is God!” rang over over the
Valley—the joys of victory.

Her prophets now martyrs, Jezebel
Waxed defiant: “Inform this prophet—
In short time he’ll join them!”
Brought fear to Elijah’s stout heart.

I had it won, my people with me—
All of Israel...
To flee in headlong panic,
From this woman...Jezebel.

Eyes closing...the escape of the ages,
Sleep for the servant, blessed and anointed,
Peace from the great Lord of hosts—
As angels stood nigh, and watched.
