Goliath

a giant on the battlefield
defies the army of the Lord
and one by one the soldiers yield
each one afraid to face that sword

a shepherd boy too young to fight
is sent to see how brothers fare
and when he sees the soldiers plight
he says, “Send me! For I will dare”

he takes no sword or shield in hand
but sling and rocks he holds instead
and armed with God, he takes his stand
and strikes the enemy down dead

not speed, nor might, but Who he knew
and thus his stone fly straight and true
