IN THE VALLY OF DEATH
David was a young lad in the king`s army.
He saw a giant as tall as a 10 foot tree.
No one would dare to go out to meet him.
They feared he would tear them from limb to limb.
David said, ''I`ll go kill that man you all fear!''
They all laughed so much, their eyes were filled
David said, ''You all can laugh all you want to!
With my bare hands, I killed a lion and a bear too!''
The king said, ''Okay David, I`ll give you a try.
Put on this armor. It may help you stay alive.''
David said, ''I can`t use this. It`s too big!
Besides, I can`t move fast in this rig!''
They all laughed again at this little young lad.
They said, ''David, why don`t you go back
to your dad?''
David said, ''God will help me take off
this giant`s head!''
This was one fight, David didn`t dread.
The king said, ''God be with you as you go.''
David ran to the valley of death below.
The giant laughed and said,
''They sent a little boy to bring me down!''
David twirled his slingshot, and with one rock,
he brought the giant to the ground.
He took the giant`s sword and cut off his head.
David said, ''Now you have no reason to fear!
The giant you all feared is dead.''
This was the battle that proved David`s valor.
He was no longer a lad. He was no longer a minor.
After this, he won many battles and fame.
Everyone, everywhere knew his name.
He proved to be a much better king than King Saul.
King Saul was the people`s King after all.
King David was God`s King, following His direction.
However, King David had to have God`s correction.
David was a man after God`s own heart.
He`s the kind of man that God`s love will impart.
He lead a nation to freedom and peace.
His Son: Solomon reigned all his years in peace.
