Carmel to Bet Shean
A valley in the sun
Ahab built his capital here
Challenging God, God won

Peoples through the ages
Sought to own this land
Fertile soil, gentle climate
A perfect place to grow

Gilboa and Tabor overlooking
As traders and civilizations fought and died
Today it is a quiet plain
Agriculture is its fame

Gideon fought and won here
Led by the power of God
Saul fought and lost here
He had turned his back on the Lord

History will have its say one day
Good and evil will stand toe to toe
We have nothing to fear from this battle
The Father raised Jesus from the dead and the battle has been won
