|1 Samuel 21:1 - 1 Samuel 22:23
Then David came to Nob, to Ahimelek the priest.
When he saw David coming he was afraid to say the least.
David said I come in secret. On a mission for the king.
But we need some food and weapons. For we did not bring a thing.
As a priest I have some shewbread, but it's holy for the Lord.
We'll take it all said David, and do you have a sword?
There is one here. You know it well.
For by your hand the giant fell.
Goliath's sword. You made him fall.
David took the sword and ran from Saul.
To the land of Gath and Achish king,
but his servants said we've heard them sing.
Saul slew his thousands while at war,
but David slew ten thousands more.
What would Achish do, this king of Gath,
knowing David here had crossed his path?
This made David fear, so he played the fool.
Like a crazy man he dripped his drool.
The king said get this beast away from me.
Why would I want him? The man's crazy.
David fled to Adullam's cave and then,
he was joined by his brothers and four hundred men.
From there they went to Judah and that's when King Saul heard,
David's been discovered, and no one said a word.
Then Doeg spoke up, the Edomite.
I saw him with the priest. I knew something wasn't right.
Ahimelek the priest gave him bread and a sword,
and to help David out. He inquired of the Lord.
That made Saul mad so he called to him the priest.
Said why did you help David? Could have sent me word at least.
Why do you want to harm him what evil has he done?
David hasn't been a traitor he's as faithful as a son.
Now Saul was really angry. Said Ahimelek you'll die.
Told his servants, kill the priests, but each one said no not I.
Then Doeg, evil Doeg went up and drew his sword,
and he killed all the priests, who served before the Lord.
|2 Samuel 22:1 - 2 Samuel 23:39
As David grew old he was given a name, this mighty defender and king.
But this name was neither mighty or ruler. This came 'cause he made people sing.
The sweet psalmist of Israel was the name that they gave,
to the king who through God was mighty to save.
My rock and my fortress, David wrote of the Lord.
In Him will I trust, for He keepeth His word.
Though hell should surround me, to Him will I call.
He defeated my enemies. He saved me from Saul.
The afflicted you saved. The haughty you crushed.
The wicked you punished and scattered like dust.
Because of His mercy I give thanks unto God.
He's a tower of salvation. His staff and His rod.
You protect me and comfort. By you I am fed.
From my men of valor the enemy's fled.
The Philistines assailed me. Before me they fell.
My men brought me water from Bethlehem's well.
The mightiest of valor, thirty-seven in all.
Though you gave strength to men, on you we would call.
I love you my God, my salvation and sword.
What a life you have given. I will worship my Lord.
The folks sang God's praises, in the songs David penned.
The sweet psalmist of Israel, blessed us all without end.
