What do you see from Carmel’s heights?
Pharaoh’s conquering army?
Assyrians marching to Jerusalem?
Babylon taking Israel to captivity?

Ancient civilizations all came by here
Everyone knew this place
Elijah came so all would know
His wonderful Lord reigned

The march up Carmel was arduous
Folks walked a few abreast
Elijah was confident
The fire destroyed Baal

I’ve always wanted to do something big for God
Fire from heaven would be fine
In the privacy of my prayer closet
The Lord reminds me of His cross I can bear

Wanting to do the things we can
Always seem so mundane
Today reclaim the cross and its bane
This is what Christ calls us to do
