Only a Boy Named David

This is a children's hymn, based on the story of David the shepherd boy who killed the giant Goliath, using only a small sling - as told in 1 Samuel 17.
 
The words and tune were written by Australian Salvation Army officer Arthur Arnott (1870-1941), and first published in 1931.

Lyrics:

Only a boy named David, only a little sling,
only a boy named David, but he could pray and sing.
Only a boy named David, only a rippling brook,
only a boy named David, but five little stones he took.

And one little stone went in the sling,
and the sling went round and round.
And one little stone went in the sling,
and the sling went round and round,
and round and round and round and round,
and round and round and round.
And one little stone went up in the air,
and the giant came tumbling down.
