"The Shepherd Boy"
1 Samuel 17:12-15
Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from
Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul's time he was old and
well advanced in years. Jesse's three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war:
The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah.
David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, but David went back
and forth from Saul to tend his father's sheep at Bethlehem.

The Shepherd Boy
This happy little tune was inspired from the book of 1st Samuel, chapter 17.
David was the son of Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and David was the youngest.
David spent many of his days tending his father's sheep in Bethlehem. The LORD delivered David from the paw of the
lion and the paw of the bear! When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, David went after it,
struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on him, he seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. (See
1 Samuel 17:34-37)
Years later, when David was 30 years old, the LORD established him as king over Israel!
The Conga drums joyfully lead the way in this song, as the sounds of flute and violin set a pleasant tone and mood for
young David, as he tends his father’s sheep in Bethlehem. David was also a musician and poet, as he was the author of
many of the Psalms. He was a man after God’s own heart! (See Acts 13:22)
