He told me a story A story of David and Goliath He told me to listen Listen intently It might just change my life He said he took no armour Or sword of another He just stood before A giant with nothing more Than sling and stone And the protection of the Lord With the Lord the giant was slain Conquered by faith Never by fear So hear the story My fearful heart For a giant stands before me Trying to gather my soul So my heart Take no sword or no armour Carry nothing more than my Lord And face the giant Take him down And conquer Fear par To be free once again
He said this was David’s story Now it’s time it write your own
Maybe I am smaller Over half a foot Than the average man But in life I am taller For I believe I can
I have stared down the giants They could never face I have stood before the mountains That they could never climb I have walked up to the walls That keep them all within
I stand taller than the giants That come against my life I stand taller than the giants That try to keep me down
For I have defeated the giants Their fear made them turn from I have throw the mountains to the sea That their pessimism stopped them climbing I have broken through the walls That their unbelieving holds them within
The reason I have achieved all this Is so very simple I Am The great I Am within me Made me believe I can
Each day I come across the giants That call in challenge every day I take a breath and close my eyes There I see David stepping out before the giant No armour or sword in his hand Just a sling and a rock To hear the scorn and jeers of man Of friend and foe alike As he faced the one Who kings and man alike did turn He had no worry for what he did not carry For he walked assured that God goes before His armour and weapons the Lord he praised His faith the rock his sling did throw To conquer the giant before their scorn To overcome where others did run When God goes before what man Or giant could come against SO can I approach my giants this way Or succumb to their words and jeers To believe there goes God before me My armour, my shield And His word the weapon to slay The Giants that stand before me each day
You’ve climbed the mountain To find the giant at the summit You defeat the giant To see yet another mountain beyond It’s a tough journey And you’re about to fall Can you take much more?
Stop right there Take to your knees Close your eyes and breathe See behind you all you’ve conquered With His hope set within your heart Mountains have fallen into the seas Giants fallen upon their knees
So rest in Him for a while Under the shadows of His wings Feel His strength begin to grow A new sunrise will shortly come You’ll rise again on eagles wings Beyond the mountain you will fly So rest in Him just for a while
