In time of famine
The prophet dwelt with
The widow God supplied.

In time of triumph God
Smelt the offering's savour,
Having provided the fire.

In time of prayer Elijah,
Bent in his intensity, knelt
Face between knees.

In time of vigour see
The rain pelt; the prophet
Outrun the chariot.

Yet in time of weakness
See his iron melt; but
God still provided.

In time of recovery
The prophet duly dealt
In judgment and grace.

The time of departure!
God showed how His heart felt
Towards His servant!

The picture is from the old black Bible book that my mother used to read to me from; I always remember this picture when I read about Elijah running.
