Greater Lands

The youngest of brothers cast out in the mud

Unknown and hidden but God knew he would

Rise at the time when his name was called

Anointed and chosen when the riddle was solved

Alone in the pasture tending the sheep

His heart always singing a joy he would keep

Secrets and living where no one could see

Solitude life in the wilderness heat

Danger of beasts lurking and stalking his flock

Trained up and ready no rest on the clock

Hour by hour passing slow into days

God saw David’s heart and he knew of his ways

Molded and humble he was formed in His hands

Prepared for a journey and greater new lands.

Inspired by 1 Samuel 16:1-12
