Trust In Christ


Goliath was that giant
Who with a warrant
He went against the Israelites
As fighting was his delights
He thought it would be an easy fight
By his built he was destined for battle
Mighty in power, high in height
But he was much disappointed
When he met one that was anointed
You could say a wee little boy
With a sling and stones like toys
'Am I a dog' said the giant
Approached by an amateur boy
Goliath was feeling insulted
Then he fell into a mighty rage
He said to David the boy
'I will take your life from you
And give you to the fowls of the air'
But little David wasn't alone
He knew God who sits on the Throne
His belief had long been fixed
He knew that the fight was betwixt
Bigger than himself, God and the giant
This David knew his true deliverer
By whom he had twice been delivered
Once from a lion next from a bear
The same God who saved him twice
He is the same God despite the riot
Made the boy David put to quiet
The great giant Goliath forever
Know who your deliver is
I will say this, trust in Christ
Fear not, for your Goliath
Just put your trust in Christ.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
