David and Goliath--1 Samuel 17

A giant stood before him
That would cause most men to fear
But David did not tremble
For he knew the Lord was near

In his own strength,
He certainly would cower
But he faced his fear
With the Almighty's power

He did not merely stand
Or move into retreat
He aligned up with the Lord
To achieve the victory

He offered up himself
As a servant of the King
Trusting in the Shepherd
To deliver him again

He would not be destroyed
By this giant that he faced
For he knew God had prepared him
For such a time and place

He was armed with faith and trust
For the battle he was in-
The Lord, his rock and shield
Who gave him strength to win

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
