“Behold, God the Lord” from Elijah

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Summer Choir Behold,

God the Lord passed by!
And a mighty wind rent the mountains around,
break in pieces the rocks, break them before the Lord.
But yet the Lord was not in the tempest.
Behold, God the Lord passed by!
And the sea was upheaved, and the earth was shaken.
But yet the Lord was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake there came a fire.
But yet the Lord was not in the fire.
And after the fire there came a still, small voice:
And in that still voice onward came the Lord.
– I Kings 19:11–12
