Elijah, Op.70 (Mendelssohn, Felix)

Denn er hat seinen Engeln befohlen. Nun auch der Bach vertrocknet ist. So wahr der Herr Zebaoth lebet. Denn er ist ja Gott! Herr, Gott Abrahams, Isaaks und Israels. Wirf dein Anliegen auf den Herrn. Der du deine Diener machst zu Geistern. Ist nicht des Herrn Wort wie ein Feuer. Weh ihnen, dass sie von mir weichen! Hilf deinem Volk, du Mann Gottes! Help, send Thy servant help, O God! The People Then hear from heaven, and forgive the sin. Help, send Thy servant help, O Lord! The heavens are black with clouds and with wind: Elijah Thanks be to God, for He is gracious, and His mercy endureth for evermore!

Chorus The People Thanks be to God! He laveth the thirsty land! The waters gather, they rush along; they are lifting their voices! The stormy billows are high, their fury is mighty. But the Lord is above them, and almighty! Aria Soprano Hear ye, Israel; hear what the Lord speaketh: To whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? Be not afraid, for I, thy God, will strengthen thee. Thy help is near. But thou, Ahab, hast done evil to provoke Him to anger above all that were before thee, as if it had been a light thing for thee to walk in the sins of Jeroboam.

Thou hast made a grove and an altar to Baal, and served him and worshipped him. Thou hast killed the righteous, and also taken possession. And the Lord shall smite all Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water; and He shall give Israel up, and thou shalt know He is the Lord. Queen Jezebel And why hath he spoken in the name of the Lord? The gods do so to me, and more, if, by tomorrow about this time, I make not his life as the life of one of them whom he hath sacrificed at the brook of Kishon! Queen Jezebel So go ye forth and seize Elijah, for he is worthy to die; slaughter him! Do unto him as he hath done!

Chorus Woe to him, he shall perish: And why hath he spoken in the name of the Lord?

Let the guilty prophet perish! He hath spoken falsely against our land and us, as we have heard with our ears. So go ye forth; seize on him! Recitative Obadiah Man of God, now let my words be precious in thy sight. Arise, then, and hasten for thy life, to the wilderness journey.

The Lord thy God doth go with thee; He will not fail thee. Now be gone, and bless me also. Elijah Though stricken, they have not grieved! Tarry here, my servant; the Lord be with thee. I journey hence to the wilderness. I desire to live no longer; now let me die, for my days are but vanity! I have been very jealous for the Lord God of Hosts! For the children of Israel have broken Thy covenant and thrown down Thine altars and slain all Thy prophets, slain them with the sword; and I, even I, only am left, and they seek my life to take it away.

Recitative Tenor See, now he sleepeth beneath a juniper tree in the wilderness; and there the angels of the Lord encamp round about all them that fear Him. Trio Lift thine eyes to the mountains, whence cometh help. Thy help cometh from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Chorus Angels He, watching over Israel, slumbers not, nor sleeps. Shouldst thou, walking in grief, languish.

He will quicken thee. Forty days and forty nights shalt thou go to Horeb, the mount of God.

Chairwoman – Siobhan Pauley/ Musical Director – Helen Brind

Elijah O Lord, I have labored in vain. Yea, I have spent my strength for naught! Oh, that Thou wouldst rend the heavens, that Thou wouldst come down; that the mountains would flow down at Thy presence, to make Thy name known to Thine adversaries, through the wonders of Thy works! Lord, why hast Thou made them err from Thy ways, and hardened their hearts, that they do not fear Thee? Oh, that I now might die! Commit thy way unto Him, and trust in Him, and fret not thyself because of evil doers. Chorus He that shall endure to the end shall be saved. Recitative Elijah Night falleth round me, O Lord!

Be Thou not far from me! Hide not Thy face, O Lord, from me; my soul is thirsting for Thee, as a thirsty land. An Angel Soprano Arise, now! Stand on the mount before the Lord; for there His glory will appear and shine on thee! Thy face must be veiled, for He draweth near. God the Lord passed by! And a mighty wind rent the mountains around, brake in pieces the rocks, brake them before the Lord; but yet the Lord was not in the tempest. And the sea was upheaved, and the earth was shaken; but yet the Lord was not in the earthquake.

And after the earthquake there came a fire; but yet the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there came a still small voice, and in that still voice onward came the Lord. Now His glory hath filled all the earth. For Thou art my Lord, and I will suffer for Thy sake. My heart is therefore glad, my glory rejoiceth, and my flesh shall also rest in hope.

Arioso Elijah For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but Thy kindness shall not depart from me, neither shall the covenant of Thy peace be removed. Chorus Then did Elijah the prophet break forth like a fire; his words appeared like burning torches. Mighty kings by him were overthrown. He stood on the mount of Sinai and heard the judgements of the future; and in Horeb, its vengeance.

And when the Lord would take him away to heaven, lo! Joy on their head shall be for everlasting, and all sorrow and mourning shall flee away for ever. Recitative Soprano Behold, God hath sent Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
