GOnly a boy named David, Only a little Dsling.
GOnly a boy named David, but A7he could play and Dsing.
GOnly a boy named David, Only a rippling Cbrook.
BmOnly a boy named EmDavid, but A7five little D7stones he Gtook.
And Cone little stone went into the sling, and the Gsling went round and round.
And Aone little stone went into the sling, and the sling went round and Dround.
And Ground, and round, and round, and round, and round, and round, and Cround.
And Gone little stone went up in the air, and the Dgiant came tumbling Gdown.

    Back in the 80s Ididthe warm up in the sancuary before we went to our Sunday School classes. Only a Boy Named David was one of the songs I used. I am now going to do a program wih the children with them narrating some of the Bible as we sing . We start with the B I B L E then some narration and into a song that goes with the area . We are using many songs in the Old and New Testaments along with he narration and ending with the B I B L E. Thank you so much for sharing this song with me. God Bless You

    I was looking for the words to Only A Boy Named David so I could use it in an upcoming Children’s message and ran across your page. Thank you! I was blessed and may you be also.

    I needed to tell a story for Vacation bible school at the last minute; so I’m going to learn this and have the children do it as a chant. Storytelling is my gift but singing is not. I think they’ll like this. Thank you and be blessed.

    I teach Awana for the Cubbie’s (3 & 4 year old). I found your site last year and totally acted the song out. The children love this song. Now we are going to do an Awana Talent and my Cubbie’s want to do this song, totally with all the motions. I look so forward to this and know I could not do this without your help. Thank you so very much for allowing all to enjoy the words to old Christian songs for children. Love it.

    The last line (as I learned it back in the 1950s) was: One little pray went up to God, and the giant fell right down.

    The third line as I learned it was “Only a boy named David but he could PRAY and sing.” Otherwise thanks for posting these lyrics as this song brought me courage as a little kid.
