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)
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

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

God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah

So Elijah took twelve stones representing
The 12 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
He said do it again, and then do it a third time
Until the whole sacrifice had been soaked down
Water poured out from the trenches
Then Elijah prayed "Lord God of Israel
Let it be known today that You are God
I pray You answer and turn their hearts back to You again
Let the fire fall, and burn it all
Let it rain down!"

God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah
God of Elijah

Lord God of Elijah let it be known today that You are God
I pray You answer and turn their hearts back to You again
Let the fire fall, and burn it all
Let it rain down

God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah, send Your fire
Let it burn up inside me, melt me down
God of Elijah
God of Elijah
