Goliath of Gath, Goliath of Gath, In armor strong and bright,

Was coming to the valley and asking for a fight

 

The Israelites the Israelites looked on and shook with fear.

None dared to face this giant whenever he came near

 

Then David arrived, Then David arrived, And he was but a lad.

He had no sword or armor, But this is what he said:

The battle is the Lord’s He’ll deliver us from sin,

If we rely, not on the sword, But put our trust in Him.

 

Goliath of Gath, Goliath of Gath saw David, young and small.

He sneered, and said that David could never make him fall.

 

But David prevailed, but David prevailed, with just a little stone.

For David knew the faithful would never be a lone

The battle is the Lord’s He’ll deliver us from sin,

If we rely, not on the sword, But put our trust in Him.

We rely, not on the sword, but put our trust in him.
