When Once a Little Boy

A king
A fighter
A singer
A writer

From little boy
To David: King
He played guitar
To dance, to sing

Anointed king
While still a lad
He then served Saul
His heart made glad

Saul knew his plight
He’d lose the crown
The next in line
He would hunt down

By God’s grace
David was spared
As Saul drew close
God was near

David knew God
His hope secure
Saul grew corrupt
The crown seen clear

Soon a new king
On Israels throne
That little boy
Of sling and stone

A king
A fighter
A singer
A writer
