Palace Living

The Lord had given David rest from enemies all ‘round.

He called a prophet to his house of cedar well renowned.

“I’m living in a palace near the Lord’s ark in a tent.”

“Go, do all that you have in mind, The Lord is with you yet.”

But that same night the word of God came to the prophet’s ear.

“I need no house. I move around. You cannot keep me here.”

“So tell the king what I have done, his greatness comes from me.

In future time an heir to him will reign eternally.”
