A handsome lad, but who would choose
the shepherd of the sheep,
away at work up in the hills,
might even be asleep?

But Samuel asked, and Jesse called,
and David came back home.
A King, he hardly looked the part,
more one who'd like to roam.

Verses 3-4 follow

(a good arrangement is available from Jubilate Hymns,
and can be accessed on HymnQuest 2012), BURFORD Metre: CM
