What chance had you against the giant?
You had to take him on alone;
You fought a tower wrapped in iron,
With just a slingshot and a stone…

It was by faith you took the challenge,
The little bee that used a sling;
And it was God who blessed your hand—
Your foe was conquered by your sting…

~~~

What chance have you against the giant?
You fleet is made of little craft;
The great armada that you face
Has strength to crush you like a gnat…

But by your faith, you take the challenge,
The little gnat that battles Spain;
What chance have you to save your home?
The greatest Empire lays her claim…

There’s no one who believes you’ll stand—
They see the giant in his pride;
But they don’t know you’re biggest weapon,
’Cause you have God on your side…

What chance have you for living free?
With God in charge—I guess we’ll see…

Excellent metaphor, and very good poetry. I enjoyed this one with growing appreciation at each stanza.
