Treasure Island

David, becomes King David


God searched for a man after His own heart.
In the hills was a shepherd boy named David.
He would sing and write Psalms for God.
The crowd would applaud.
David as he killed the giant Goliath.
David went against the Philistine giant fearless.
Hitting him with a single rock slingshot making him breathless,
The crowd saw David was deathless.
King Saul became jealous.
Seeing the crowd zealous,
He wanted David dead.
But, David would lead.
The army to victory,
Killing thousands, upon thousands, of the Philistine army,
He would lead them to victory over and over, again.
David reined.
While King Saul showed no mercy,
Not realizing David had already been anointed, by Samuel to be the next king.
David would sing.
Singing to God,
Saul was driven by his own madness.
Living in darkness,
Driven by demons,
Israel was ready for another king.
For David to wear the signet ring,
King Saul driven by evil fell on his sword.
And David the once shepherd boy was crowned king.
Thence becomes the story of King David, the second King of Israel.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
