Gideon’S Song


Israel for seven years under the oppressors
It was because they followed other gods
Refusing to obey the Word of the Lord
But under that oak was Gideon
Mighty man of courage
“The Lord is with you, go in this thy might
Go in this thy might and save Israel!”

But the battle is not for the weak
So let the fearful and shy go home
Let’s blow the trumpets and draw our swords
And draw our swords, the Lord will fight!

When the Holy Spirit came on Gideon
He blew the trumpet
Thirty two thousand gathered after him
Too few for him, too many for the Lord
Three hundred mighty men of courage
Ready for the war
It is to live or die, we cannot lose!
No we cannot lose, the Lord is our strength!
