lyrics

there once was a man from a covenant land in the east
he was sent to confront a great kingdom, corrupt and diseased
he sealed the rain in the heavens, called fire to the earth
he brought back the dead by his prophetic word
and though chased like a thief, his heart still grieved
for the souls who sought his life

as he slipped away, to a cave to pray

and there was a strong wind, but the Lord was not in it
an earthquake came but the Lord was not
there was a fire, but the Lord was not in it
and after the fire, a still small voice

there once was a boy from a small farm in young america
he heard each new praise in those excitable days of hallelujiahs
so many voices, but no harmony
just how many ways could the same verses read?
and though about to lead nations through the last dispensation
he sought only one simple truth

as he slipped away, to a grove to pray

and there was a strong wind, but the Lord was not in it
an earthquake came but the Lord was not
there was a fire, but the Lord was not in it
and after the fire, a still small voice

there was a young man from a covenant land in the west
born of goodly parents, he knew he was blessed
and he grew in to this heritage passed through the years
he read of these men who had conquered all fear
but their words, like any, were void without proof
so what was tradition, and what was truth?
and then came his day to be sent far away
to proclaim it with his life

so he slipped away, found a place to pray

and there was a strong wind, but the Lord was not in it
an earthquake came but the Lord was not
there was a fire, but the Lord was not in it
and after the fire, i felt, that still small voice
