When sickness came into the house
The mistress gave God the blame
Elijah had no desire to
See her bear such pain
He carried the boy up to his room
Perhaps a bit unsure
But certain God would hear his prayer
And know his heart was pure
He knew God was the source of life
And He was up to the task
He also knew that certain things
All you have to do is ask.
It is not a prescription for all ages
Not an equation for us today
It doesn’t mean if you stretch three times
That death will go away.
But within the mysteries of God
There are some things we know
That God is God, and death is not,
And what He says – is so.
God revealed in Jesus,
Told His disciples not to fear-
What can happen to the body,
And so it comes more clear.
The miracle of Elijah
Helping the child to revive
Pales next to God offering everyone
To be made New Creation Alive.
