DAVID


Little David, shepherd boy,
Sleeping there beneath the stars -
You may not know it, yet, but God
Knows the wonder that you are!

Just because you had to fight
To save your flock from enemies,
You were strengthened, in your soul,
And did for God a mighty thing!

Little David, with his sling -
Goliath (great and mighty, tall,
Armored, and so highly trained)
Fell the hardest of them all!

Little David, now the King,
Still can play the harp and lyre,
Sing the songs of God on high,
With the Spiritís mighty power!

GIDEON


He thought he was a farmer.
But, then, the angel came.
He called him "Mighty Warrior".
Why, he knew Gideonís name!

He took his fatherís wagon
And pulled the idol down.
They had an awful ruckus,
In Gideonís town!

Many men made soldiers.
But, God said, "No!
A bunch of these guys
Will have to go!

I donít make mistakes,
And I want the world to know
That I won the battle,
Not you men from below!

Take your soldiers for a drink.
Let a few more go.
Those that lap like dogs,
Well, send those fellows home!

Now, sneak into the camp site
Of your enemy.
Get your lanterns ready,
Bugles on key.

Shout, 'I serve the living God!'
Praise Me and, now, sing!
Know you serve a living God
Who can do anything!"

NOAH


Howíd you get all those hens,
Birds and cats, and goats back then?
Howíd they come to just that place?
Did some of them have to race?

The rain would come,
But not before
Noah got them in and
God shut the door!

Now, tell me true,
Did none of them fight
When they had to stay there,
On the boat, all night?

And I can guess,
When the water went away,
They had an awful crowd
At the door, that day!

They must have stuck around.
For, a rainbow, high,
Was shining, right there,
In the big, blue, sky!

A rainbow is a promise
That Godís word is true,
A promise that Heíll always
Love me and you.
