The David Spirit

When tending to my daily tasks,
And told that I will be promoted,
May I faithfully do what my boss asks.
To be trusted with this new work, my heart feels bloated.

When trouble in giant proportions comes,
May I tackle it with confidence.
As others just hide in their homes,
May I maintain a David spirit until the trouble ends.

As I lead the team in times of battle,
And even a loved one wants to take my place,
May I continue to guide my people as cattle,
And keep this look of determination on my face.

As I am tempted by an attractive prospect,
One that belongs to someone else,
May I my sinful desires deflect,
And reject anything that the tempter sells.

As I write of my employer's gentle ways,
I reflect on how he has blessed me.
I'll sing his praises for all my days,
And maybe act the dancing fool continually!

As I grow older, may I instruct my son
To have the David spirit, to lead fearlessly.
When my time on this earth is done,
Let it be known that the CEO reigns eternally!
