American Marines stand together. Lift voices to sing ‘Days of Elijah’

October 22nd, 2020

The grandest achievements come from togetherness…

Just like these Marines singing in harmony.

In the field, they have each other’s backs. At the end of the day, they’re best friends no matter the circumstances.

Every job, even the most intense endeavors, could use some wholesome comradery!

So take a break and join these Marines in some musical fun!

They’re obviously not opera singers, but pitch-perfect vocals aren’t necessary, anyway!

Have you heard Robin Mark’s classic “Days of Elijah”?

Well, these Marines certainly have!

In what appears to be a lecture hall, they begin to sing along in a giant jam session. The lyrics go a little something like this:

“These are the days of Elijah

Declaring the word of the Lord:

And these are the days of Your servant Moses

Righteousness being restored”

They’re brothers in arms, literally.

The Marines splay their hands and arms across each other’s shoulders, creating a heartwarming show of friendship and humanity.

The Christian anthem continues:

“And though these are days of great trial

Of famine and darkness and sword

Still, we are the voice in the desert crying

‘Prepare ye the way of the Lord!'”

The Marines gesture along to the music. Their playful choreography features waving and swaying along to the rhythm.

The wall to the left houses red columns akin to those found on the American flag.

It’s a perfect backdrop to the Marines’ soulful singing.

“Behold He comes riding on the clouds

Shining like the sun at the trumpet call;

Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee

And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes”

What’s the largest crowd you’ve sung with?

Everyone’s blurted out the national anthem at a football or basketball game, but this is on another level!

Did they practice beforehand? The standing choreography isn’t too shabby, all things considered.

“And these are the days of Ezekiel

The dry bones becoming as flesh;

And these are the days of Your servant David

Rebuilding a temple of praise”

The Marines point their hands to the sky in unison.

There are so many smiles in that room! That’s a lot of fun for one lecture hall!

I wonder how many Marines are in there?

Seriously, that’s a huge lecture hall. Even the professor seems okay with giant jam sesh. He actually seems to enjoy it!

Hundreds of voices continue along to “Days of Elijah.”

“And these are the days of the harvest

Oh, the fields are as white in Your world

And we are the labourers in Your vineyard

Declaring the word of the Lord!”

They even have the lyrics up on the big screen!

There’s nothing quite like spending quality time with some of your best friends.

2020’s been a strange, difficult year.

These Marines display the power of unity and togetherness amid a divisive social and political climate heading into November.

A divided Marine Corps simply can’t function. Neither can a divided America!

If you’re seeking the winds of change, make sure to get out and vote!

Make your voice heard!

Unfortunately, coronavirus cases are spiking yet again, including across the Midwest, so make sure to take the proper health and safety precautions!
