All About Dave

Now this is a story all about Dave, he wasn't very big but he was very brave 
He had a reputation as a Godly lad, and he lived with his brothers and his mom and dad 
Now Dave was the shepherd of his father's sheep, his job, I'm told, was to tend and keep 
The rams and the ewes and the baby lambs, safe from the jaws of the bears and lions 
Who on occasion tried to steel a baby lamb for every meal 

Now every time that this occurred, young Dave, without a spear or sword 
Would grab them by their bearded chins and smack them 'til he did them in
'Cause that's just the way he was 

Now Dave was the servant of a king named Saul, who together with the army of Israel 
Were camping in the valley of Elah one day, his men, I'm told, were many they say 
All manly men, all brave and bold, who always did what they were told
Until they met Goliath 

Now Goliath was a Philistine, over ten feet tall and extremely mean 
He wore a helmet on his head and those he fought all wound up dead
Or badly bruised & broken they said 

His staff was like a weaver's beam, extremely heavy or so it seemed
And his armor coat was as heavy as a man, and those he met, they always ran
Not one would stand and fight him, I don't think they liked him 

So for forty days and forty nights Goliath tried to pick a fight 
With each and every Israelite, who were so afraid and so dismayed 
That none would stand and fight him, none that is but Dave 

"Now what will be my just reward if I kill this giant and scatter the hoard of Philistines?" said Dave 
Ah the king will make you a rich young man, plus, you'll get his daughter's hand 
And with Israel's redemption lad, your dad will have exemption 

"Besides," thought Dave, "I'm not alone, for GOD will help me fling the stone" 
"All right," said Dave, "it's a deal, I'll fight, one round, one fall, and the winner takes all" 

With that he went into a brook and out of it five stones he took 
And put them in his shepherd's bag or pouch which hung around his leg 

With staff and sling and stones in hand he went to fight this monstrous man 
Who mocked and laughed and jeered as he approached him 

Now as I've already mentioned, it was not young Dave's intention 
To fight Goliath on his own, with just a staff and sling and stone, no
For Dave he was a Godly lad a
nd he would trust in Him it's said 
"Again," said GOD, "I speak the truth, that even though you are a youth, 
Your faith in Me will enable you to crush him" 

So off went Dave so bold and brave, not by himself, but with GOD's help 
And put the stone into the sling, a
nd gave the thing an awful fling
And struck and killed Goliath 

When the Philistines saw he was dead, they lost their nerve and quickly fled 
And Dave he took his sword and head and walked away defiant
Because God had killed the giant, and as proof that GOD will never fail
He kept the coat, now he's got mail 

Now the moral of this story is, although it might sound gory is
That Dave was not a bit like Saul, he saw the writing on the wall
The bigger they are, the harder they fall 

But if you want to get ahead, just obey GOD, do what He said 
And trust in Him with all your might, and He will be the One to fight
And you will be triumphant, praise the LORD
