Sitting here on the side of the hill is safe.
Safe is good.
Safe doesn’t hurt!
The entire army is safe here with me, on the side of this hill.
I’m just a boy.
What can one boy do?
My brothers say I ask too many questions.
“Shut up!” And to quit bothering their comrades in arms.
“Get back to the few sheep before they wander off!”
Without a Sheppard sheep tend to wander off.
But when a lion or bear shows up it’s always in a valley.
Then we sheep bunch up in fear on the hill sides…
… where it’s safe!
Adam trying to keep his marriage safe, bit into the apple.
Cain thought his reputation would remain safe, so he killed his brother!
People stood safely on a hillside laughing at the crazy man in the Valley Building a boat,
miles away from any water.
Then the rain started to fall!
A multitude of voters thought living in a big city was safe, so they built a tower!
I’ve had a belly full of safe!
The Valley’s scary…And as my brothers and the King keep reminding me,
I’m just one boy! What can I do?
But the Valley is where the giants are
And giants won’t stay in the Valley forever
While the army of Israel live in fear and ignorance on this hillside!
I need five stones –
Smooth to fly swift –
Solid to penetrate deep.
I need five stones because this giant has four brothers
And all I have is a sling…
I didn’t bring a sword.
I intend to use the giant’s
To cut his head off!
