Contents: CD 1: As God the Lord of Israel liveth --
Help, Lord! --
The deep affords no water! --
Lord, bow Thine ear to our pray'r! --
Ye people, rend your hearts --
If with all your hearts --
Yet doth the Lord see it not --
Elijah! Get thee hence; Elijah! --
For he shall give His angels charge --
Now Cherith's brook is dried up --
What have I to doith thee --
Bless'd are they who fear the Lord --
As God the Lord of Sabaoth liveth --
Baal, we cry to thee --
Call him louder, for he is a god! --
Call him louder! He heareth not --
Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel --
Cast thy burden upon the Lord --
O Thou, who makest Thine angels --
Is not His word like a fire! --
Woe, woe unto them who forsake Him! --
O man of God, help thy people --
Thanks be to God! CD 2: Hear ye, Israel --
Thus saith the Lord --
I am He that comforteth --
Be not afraid, saith God the Lord --
The Lord hath exalted thee --
Woe to him! He shall perish! --
Man of God, now let my words --
It is enough! O Lord, now take --
See, now he sleepeth --
Lift thine eyes to the mountains --
He, watching over Israel, slumbers not --
Arise, Elijah --
Oh rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him --
He that shall endure to the end --
Night falleth round me! O Lord --
Behold, God the Lord passed by! --
Above Him stood the Seraphim --
Holy, holy, holy --
Go return upon thy way --
For the mountains shall depart --
Then did Elijah the prophet break forth --
Then shall the righteous shine --
Behold, God hath sent Elijah the prophet --
But the Lord from the north hath raised one --
Oh come ev'ryone that thirsteth --
And then shall your light break forth
