Elijah Rocks

Elijah

 

ELIJAH
(as sung by The Golden Gate Quartet)

All:
God said He would
Send down fire
Send it down to Elijah
Said He would set the altar on fire
Yep, didn’t He say
Didn’t He say

God said He would
Send down fire
(Yeah)
Send it down to Elijah
Said He would set the altar on fire
Yep, didn’t He say
Didn’t He say

Other members of the quartet hum “Hmmm” after every line

Soloist :
Well, God know Elijah was a great man of God
They tell me that Elijah went wandering abroad
In a land of no food, no water to drink
But they tell me, Great God, he had the Bible strength
He got food from the raven and the dove
Water from the brooks so I heard
So he went struttin’ on down to Israel land
To tell them how long the family would stand.

All:
God said He would
Send down fire
Send it down to Elijah
Said He would set the altar on fire
Yep, didn’t He say
Didn’t He say

God said He would
Send down fire
(Yeah)
Send it down to Elijah
Said He would set the altar on fire
Yep, didn’t He say
Ah, didn’t He say

Soloist:
(Members of the quartet hum “Dooo” in the background after every line)
Great God!
Then old King Ahab he wanted to know
How could be so sure
Then Elijah said “Stop” Let me show
That a man of God ought to know
Just heard from the Master and got a request
Just build and have a contest
Ah build an altar all made of stone
And the mighty man began to moan.
And they cried “Baal”

All:
Send down the fire
(Oh!)
Send the fire
Oh, send the fire
Send the fire from the sky

(Woah! Call them!)
Send the fire
(Woah! Call them!)
Send the fire
Well, call a little louder.
Oh, won’t you call them.

Some people sleepin.
Won’t you send the fire from the sky.

Soloist:
Members of the quartet hum “oooo” throughout
From morning to evening they did cry
Tryin to bring down fire from the sky
Then Elijah callin from freedom land
to the Rose of Sharon, the God on high
Then lightning came down from the sky
And struck the altar with a burning fire
And the people standing heard him cry

God said He would

All:
God said He would
Send down fire

(Said He would)
Send it down to Elijah

(Said He would)
Set the altar on fire
Didn’t He say
Didn’t He say

Elijah Rock 

 

ELIJAH ROCK

Elijah Rock, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord
Elijah Rock, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord

Elijah, Elijah, Elijah
Elijah, Elijah, Elijah
Satan is a liar and a conjurer too
If you don’t mind high, he’ll come to you
If I could, I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood

Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord
Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord

Ezekiel said he saw him
Wheel in the mid’ of a wheel
John talked about him
In the book of the seven seals
Some say the Rose of Sharon
Others say the Prince of Peace
But I can tell this old world
He been a rock and a shelter for me
Hallelujah

Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord
Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord

You can call my rock in the morning
Call him late at night
He’s always with me
And all my battles he’ll fight
When I’m in trouble
I can call him on the line
He put a telephone in my heart
And I can call God anytime
Hallelujah

Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord
Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock I’m comin’ up, Lord

You can call my rock in the morning
Call him late at night
He’s always with me
All my battles he’ll fight
When I’m in trouble
I can call him on the line
He got a telephone in my heart
And I can call God anytime
Hallelujah

Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock comin’ up, Lord
Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout
Elijah Rock I’m comin’ up, Lord
