Lyrics
V1 - Bring on the showdown
How long will you waver between two opinions
If the Lord is God then follow Him
but if Baal is god then follow him (1 Kings 18:21)
There are 450 prophets of Baal and just one of me
so it should be no problem to get his attention
and show everyone here today that if he's the real god
he'll have to send fire down (1 Kings 18:22- 24)
So they began to shout, run around,
cut themselves Baal made no reply,
so Elijah cried, maybe he's sleeping,
or busy or traveling or using the bathroom,
or deeply thinking (1 Kings 18:25-29)

C - God of Elijah, (2 Kings 2:14)
send your fire let it burn up inside me,
melt me down (Hebrews 12:29)

V2 - So Elijah took twelve stones representing the twelve tribes
and built an altar of sacrifice and dug up a trench
and cut up a bull and placed it on the wood,
and poured four jars of water all around (1 Kings 18:30-33)
He said do it again and then do it a third time
until the whole sacrifice had been soaked down
Water rolled out of the trenches, and Elijah prayed (1 Kings 18:34-35)
Lord God of Israel let it be known today that
You are God And I pray You answer and turn their hearts back to You again
let the fire fall and burn it all, let it rain down (1 Kings 18:36-38)
