Victory in the Name

David faced his giant.

He ran toward, not from the foe.

He had learned the secret of warfare.

He knew what we need to know.


Using someone else’s armor

is not the way to go.

It’ll never be a perfect fit;

gotta go with what you know.


David knew his Shepherd.

David knew his sling.

David knew how to fight a fight.

David knew how to sing.


Goliath taunted David,

as giants often do.

“You’re small. I’m tall. You’re going down.

I’m gonna have my way with you.”


David kept on advancing;

singing the battle song:

“The Name of the Lord is a strong tower;

with Him I can’t go wrong!”


He reached in his pouch and chose the Rock:

“This giant’s coming down!”

He slung his sling, that little thing,

and nailed him on the crown.


Our giants CAN be defeated,

EVERY single one.

Name them by name, then proclaim in the Name:

“The work of the cross is done.”

    “The Name of the Lord is a strong tower;
    with Him I can’t go wrong!”
