It didnít take God long to dump King Saul
when David, Jesseís son, came into view;
bright eyes, and ruddy cheeks and God just knew
that this young man would be Godís all in all,
What if Bathshebaís husband paid the price ?
Prim, boring, man could well have played the game
become the father of King Davidís shame
enjoyed his leave, enjoyed his gorgeous wife.
He did not know you could not love too much.
But David - love came spilling out of him
for Johnathan, and Absolom oír brimmed
and love for God; and all that Javweh touched.
Excessive love, a blend of tears, affection
Is just the recipe for Godís confection.
