Music: Ye People, Rend Your Hearts (No. 3 from Mendelssohn’s “Elijah”) | Félix Mendelssohn
Ye people rend your hearts, rend your hearts and not your garments.
For your transgressions the prophet Elijah has sealed the heavens,
Through the word of God. I therefore say to ye, forsake your idols;
Return to God, for He is slow to anger and merciful and kind and gracious,
and repenteth Him of the evil.

If with all your heart ye truly seek Me,
Ye shall ever surely find Me,
Thus saith our God.
If with all your heart ye truly seek Me,
Ye shall ever surely find Me,
Thus saith our God. Thus saith our God.

Oh, that I knew where I might find Him,
That I might even come before His presence.
Oh, that I knew where I might find Him,
That I might even come before His presence, come before His presence.
Oh, that I knew where I might find Him.

If with all your heart ye truly seek Me,
Ye shall ever surely find Me,
Thus saith our God.
Ye shall ever surely find Me,
Thus saith our God.
