Elijah Rock, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord
 Elijah Rock, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord

Elijah, Elijah, Elijah 
Elijah, Elijah, Elijah  Satan is a liar and a conjurer too
If you don't mind high, he'll come to you
If I could, I surely would
 Stand on the rock where Moses stood 

 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord
 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord

 Ezekiel said he saw him
 Wheel in the mid' of a wheel 
John talked about him
In the book of the seven seals
Some say the Rose of Sharon  Others say the Prince of Peace 
But I can tell this old world 
He been a rock and a shelter for me
 Hallelujah 

 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord
 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord

You can call my rock in the morning 
Call him late at night 
He's always with me
And all my battles he'll fight 
When I'm in trouble 
I can call him on the line
He put a telephone in my heart 
And I can call God anytime  Hallelujah 

 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord
 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock I'm comin' up, Lord

You can call my rock in the morning 
Call him late at night 
He's always with me
All my battles he'll fight 
When I'm in trouble 
I can call him on the line
He got a telephone in my heart 
And I can call God anytime  Hallelujah 

 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock comin' up, Lord
 Elijah Rock, shout, shout, shout  Elijah Rock I'm comin' up, Lord
