A mighty Judge of Israel; Samson was his name,
His strength inspired Hercules to try to do the same.
"He wouldn't drink strong drink, and he wouldn't cut his hair,
With bare hands he slew the lion, and then left him lying there.

A mighty Judge of Israel: Samson was his name..
Used the jawbone of a donkey to put the Philistine's to shame.
Women were his weakness, they persisted in their plot,
To learn his riddle and his secret: which eventually they got!

"From the eater came forth meat; from the strong came sweetness",
Plowing with his heifer brought all the guest's completeness.
And when the Feast was over and the bride was kissed at last,
They got a change of garments just before the die was cast.

The honey from the lion was the Riddle to his love..
The secret of his strength was that it came from "up above".
Then blinded by Delilah and forced to turn the wheel,
Samson's hair kept growing as he grinded out the meal.

Came the day the Philistines brought Samson for their fun..
They chained him tween two pillars so that he couldn't run.
He flexed his mighty muscles; it got quiet as a mouse..
His prayer to God was answered by bringing down the house!

They say he killed more in his death than when he was alive,
And through the Cross of Calvary, many millions have revived.
Samson ate the honey, but he killed the lion first,
And now we see the story was a tale for those who thirst. Amen?
