Bless me, Lord, that I might do
Great things for You;
Against the evils that assail
Make me prevail.
Against King Saul who sought to still
The lyre and kill
The shepherd-soldier, David stayed
His hand and blade.
The Chosen's life let no one take
For justice' sake;
The flying spear You timely send—
Saul met his end.
While foes remain, make enemies sleep,
In slumber deep;
As You gave David victory,
So do for me.
by J. Randal Matheny. Bible reference: 1 Samuel 26, especially verse 25.
