The Rich Mullins pre-St. Patrick's Day Countdown: The eerily prophetic "Elijah"

"Elijah" was an early composition by Rich Mullins which, in light of the circumstances surrounding his tragic death, now sounds eerily prophetic. He recorded one version for his self-titled work, Rich Mullins, in 1986 but re-recorded it for the Songs compilation in 1996. An early performance from Cincinnati Bible College in 1982 is coupled here with a later performance a few months before his death, appropriate bookends for a life and ministry cut way too short.
