Tune: "Count Your Many Blessings"
Gid-e-on you have be-come the cho-sen son,
Out of all of Is-ra-el you are the one
To de-liv-er Is-ra-el from Mi-di-an.
God will sure-ly show you how He wants it done.
An-gel came and gave a pow'r-ful sign,
Fleece was wet with dew, but ground was dry.
Then an-other, (slowly and deliberately) God will prove to you.
Ground was wet and fleece was dry. He knows it's true.
Gid-e-on had such an ar-my of great men,
But God looked at them and said, "They're too man-y".
Gave some tests un-til three hun-dred men were left.
With that num-ber God would sure-ly get glo-ry.
For the wea-pons Gid-e-on would use
Pit-chers, torch-es, trum-pets God did choose.
They sur-round-ed (slowly and deliberately) Mid- i- an that night.
And the sol-diers killed each o-ther in the fight.
Though your man-y trou-bles seem to get you down
Al-ways trust in God and He will care for you.
Look for an-swers to your pray'rs and you will see
God is real-ly watch-ing and will bless you too.
Just as He helped Gid-e-on that night
You will know that He is there for you.
Trust his wor-d (slowly and deliberately) He is rea- dy still.
To give aid and com-fort. God is al-ways true.
