You come to me with a sword and a spear

You come to me with a sword and a spear,
But I come to you in the name of the God of the ranks of Israel,
Whom you’ve defied, but on this day
Jehovah will deliver you into my hand!
It’s not by sword (or shield) that Jehovah saves,
For the battle is the Lord’s, He will prevail!
Then all our shame will be turned away;
And all the earth will know there’s a God in Israel!
The giant rose and came to fight,
And David hurried, running to the battle line!
He chose a stone from the five in his sack
And slung it quickly at that giant, just in time!
Goliath tall had a giant fall!
Brave David won that day with just a stone and sling!
Their giant dead, the Philistines fled,
And Israel chased them that whole day far, far away!
