1 Kings 19:11–13 (Listen)

11 And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper.1 13 And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

4. Come not in terror, as the King of kings, 
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings; 
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea. 
Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with me. 

8. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes, 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies. 
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me!
