Hi Eileen,

There is a contemporary song by Floyd Hawkins called "Let Thy Mantle Fall on Me", based on 2 Kings 2. Not sure if this is it...the lyrics go something like this:

1. Elijah was God's prophet;
Elisha stood close by,
And ere the prophet left him,
He heard his servant cry:

Let thy mantle fall on me;
Let thy mantle fall on me.
A double portion of Thy Spirit, Lord,
Let thy mantle fall on me."

Then Elijah made the promise that,
if faithful he would be,
His petition would be granted
And God's glory he would seeā€¦

Hope this is it!

God bless,

Another verse is:
In the upper room they waited
Twas a faithful Christian band
And their prayer was heard and answered
Over in the Glory Land

I heard this song beautifully sung when I was 15 (now 65) at Evangel College (now Evangel University) attending a Youth Conference in the summer.  It was sung by the Northwest District Choir of the Assemblies of God.  All of the singers were teenagers in high school from the Northwest District out of Washington state.  I went back to Evangel to attend school when I was 17 and graduated at age 22.
