   David And Goliath 

Part 1:

Oh, just a shepherd boy was David 4/6/97
The youngest son of Jesse
The prophet Daniel did anoint him
The king of Israel to be
He tended sheep in the hills of Bethlehem 4/7
Notes from his harp floating in the skies
It was known God walked with David 4/8
Under his house was born Christ

I won’t be afraid, Lord
For You lead me
I know Your goodness and your love will be with me

Now it was Saul who ruled the Israelites
His soul was tortured and disturbed
A servant told him of the shepherd,
His soothing music and his words
And so King Saul sent for this David
Whose music eased his troubled soul
He made him keeper of his armor
And grew to love him as his own

I won’t be afraid, Lord
For You lead me
I know Your goodness and your love will be with me

Part 2:

The Philistines on a hill challenging the Israelites 4/9
A ten foot giant named Goliath steps into the spotlight
Send me your best man, he said, I will defeat him
Winner takes all, loser serves the victor
Let the better man win

I am Goliath 4/10
I am Goliath

King Saul and his soldiers trembling in their boots
Along comes the boy David bringing his brothers food
He says, Who is this man who dares to defy God’s army?
I’ve saved a lamb; killed a lion and a bear
God is with me

I’ll fight Goliath 4/11
(The soldiers laughed, you must be joking!)
I’ll fight Goliath
(Ha Ha, you’re far too weedy!)
I’ll fight Goliath
(You must be touched, what are you thinking?)
I’ll fight Goliath
(Oh, alright then!)

Part 3:

Down to the brook went David
Collected five round, smooth stones
Took his staff and sling with him
Went to meet Goliath alone 4/13
Who is this boy you send me?
I’ll feed you to the beasts and the birds
But David said, God is with me
He will deliver me, hear my words!

Took a stone from his leather bag 4/14
Placing it in his sling
Spun it round faster and faster
Then let it fly like lightning
Hit the giant between the eyes and
He went crashing to the ground
Took Goliath’s sword to finish him
Carried his head back to the crowd

And fearing the children of Israel
The Philistines retreated
And King Saul honored David
Goliath was defeated

Oh, just a shepherd boy was David
The youngest son of Jesse
The prophet Daniel did anoint him
The king of Israel to be
