Daniel In the Lions Den

Daniel In the Lion’s Den Daniel was one of three administrators Who ruled over 120 satraps Appointed by King Darius Who agreed to important edicts One of these edicts Was a public decree That no worship was possible Unless to Darius on bended knee So when Daniel was found To pray three times per day To his God in heaven As a crime was portrayed So reluctantly King Darius Ordered Daniel to the lions’ den But God sent an angel To close the lions’ mouths again and again. At the first light of dawn The King called to Daniel in anguish For he hadn’t slept all night He feared that Daniel would perish But when Daniel told him “Not one lion has harmed me” The King was overjoyed that Daniel’s God Preserved Daniel to be set free. Those who had falsely accused Daniel Were thrown to the lions instead The king and his subjects were ordered to worship Daniel’s God as their head What a mighty witness To a pagan king Daniel trusted his God Through this trial he'd bring.
