lyrics

Dear God please help me to be your prophet.
Help me to show these people
that you are the only almighty God
and you want to save them. Answer me Lord answer me…

In the name of living God who I serve
I tell you there will be no dew or rain
For the next three years until I say so
you shall know that it’s for your blasphemy.

You thought that Baal will give you abundance
and you were worshiping the Canaani idols.
You have seduced your entire kingdom
so now tremble before anger of the almighty God.

After some time in the third year of the drought
Lord said to me: I will send the rain.
Go and present yourself to King Ahab.
So you set off to meet me one more time!

Now order all the people of your kingdom
to meet me at mount Carmel.
Bring along all your prophets of Baal and
all the prophets of the goddess Asherah

How much longer will it take you to make up your minds
If Lord is God worship him but if Baal is god worship him!
I am the only prophet of the Lord still left, but there are
450 prophets of the Baal.

Bring two bulls, kill them, make burnt offering.
Offer to your baal but don’t light the fire.
I will do the same and offer to the Lord
And the one who answers by sending the fire, he is GOD!

Answer us Baal! Answer us Baal!

Pray louder! He is a god! Maybe he is
Day-dreaming, or relieving himself or perhaps
He has gone on a journey! Or maybe he
is sleeping, and you’ve got to wake him up!

They cut themselves with knives until the blood flowed.
But no answer came.
Come closer to me, I will offer to the LORD
Repair ancient altar which has been torn down.

place the wood on the altar,
cut the bull in pieces and lay it on the wood.
Pour the water on the offering. Now let me pray...

O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob, prove now that you are
the God of Israel and that I am your servant and have
done all this at your command.

Answer me, Lord, answer me, so that
this people will know that you, the Lord,
are God and that you are bringing their
miserable hearts back again to you.

The Lord sent fire down and it burned up the sacrifice
The wood and the stones, scorched the earth
and dried up the water in the trench.
All people claimed: The Lord Alone is God!

Seize the prophets
lead them down to river Kishon
and kill them all!
