Go Hide Yourself

1 Kings 17:2-3-Then the word of the Lord came to him,, saying,, "Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan."

Go hide yourself Elijah 

Head east by the brook

You'll be there awhile 

Bring with you a good book

Go hide yourself Elijah

In this solitary lane 

For in this whole nation

There will be no rain

Go hide yourself Elijah 

Though the call seems erased

Void of outward success

You will not be replaced 

Go hide yourself Elijah 

In this death to self

I'm still working in you

Though you sit on a shelf 

Go hide yourself Elijah 

Some.will be disappointed 

But in this lonely place

You are still God's anointed 

Go hide yourself Elijah 

Trust in what I have said 

In your hunger within

Ravens will bring you bread 

Go hide yourself Elijah 

Honor me in this thing

And when the time arrives 

You will prophesy to the king
