1 Does it not grief and wonder move!
To think of Israel's dreadful fall!
Who needed miracles to prove!
Whether the Lord was God or Baal!

2 Methinks I see Elijah stand,
His features glow with love and zeal,
In faith and prayer he lifts his hand,
And makes to heaven his great appeal.

3 "Oh, God, if I thy servant am,
If 'tis thy message fills my heart,
Now glorify thy holy name,
And shOw this people who thou art."

4 He spoke, and lo, a sudden flame,
Consumed the wood, the dust, the stone,
The people struck, at once proclaim
"The Lord is God, the Lord alone."

5 Like him we mourn an awful day,
When more for Baal than God appear;
Like him believers, let us pray,
And may the God of Israel hear.

6 Lord! if thy servant speaks thy truth,
If he indeed is sent by thee,
Confirm the word to all our youth,
And let them thy salvation see.

7 Now may the Spirit's holy fire,
Pierce every heart that hears thy word;
Consume each hurtful vain desire,
And make them know thou art the Lord.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
