David, son of Jesse
Shepherd to his fathers sheep
Played the harp when Saul got weary
Rocked the giant till he was fast asleep

People prayed when Saul killed thousands
When David killed ten thousand, they cheered
And all that noise they saw angry
And the shepherd was on the lamb for years

David was a man down in Israel
Fighter, lover, shepherd, king, outlaw
And through it all God loved him and forgave him
David, the man who'd done it all

Bathsheba wife of Uriah
Took a bath under David's watchful eye
He fell in love and took her body
Then he sent Uriah out to die

He was weak, like you and I are
And as a sinner David did his part
But God said, "This man David
Is a man after My own heart"

David was a man down in Israel
Fighter, lover, shepherd, king, outlaw
And through it all God loved him and forgave him
David, the man who'd done it all
Ah David, the man who'd done it all
