By Request, ‘Days of Elijah’

This isn’t exactly the format in which Erlene requested this hymn; but when I watched this video of a hall full of U.S. Marines singing it, I couldn’t resist: Days of Elijah. It stirred my soul. May it stir yours, too.

Yes, I know this song–not to mention the Marines–will make some people highly nervous. It celebrates God’s earthly heroes of the Old Testament, Moses and the Prophets, and David, as forerunners and types of Jesus Christ Our Lord. I defy you to remain unmoved when these Marines burst out, “There is no God like Jehovah!”

Amen and amen!

  1. Thank you so much for selecting this version, Lee! It has particularly touched me because my husband was a recon marine on a hill in Vietnam during the TET offensive. He saw his best buddy killed, but not before his buddy had written on my husband’s helmet ‘Just you and me, right God?’ He still tears up when he speaks of him.
