Unison/Two-part chorus, piano
Composed by Lynn Shaw Bailey. Octavo. Chorister's Guild #CGA1182. Published by Chorister's Guild (CG.CGA1182).

Item Number: CG.CGA1182

This charming arrangement of the popular African American spiritual tells the story of David tending his sheep, slaying Goliath, and serving as king while remaining God's faithful child and shepherd boy. The lighthearted piano accompaniment imitates sounds of a harp playing and a giant falling before the anthem concludes with a playful partner-song. An optional scripture-based narrative provides a creative introduction to the piece, highlighting David's anointment as king and verses of praise from the Psalms.
