Nebuchadnezzar sent out a decree -
that you must bow down to the image you see -
bow to an image, an image of gold.
Do as he tells you. Now do as your told.
This he demands and this he requires -
or you will be thrown in the hottest of fires.
Well everyone bowed - got down on a knee -
worshiping idols - except for these three...
Well Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego -
they didn't bow down, they wouldn't go.
The king found out (old Nebuchadnezzar),
that they said "no", that they said "never".
So then the great king with an angry old glance,
demanded they bow, gave them one more chance.
The king said to worship, worship it now,
but they wouldn't do it - they wouldn't bow.
So into the fire the three men were thrown -
but to the Heavens, their prayers were well-known.
Though seven times hotter those wicked flames swirled,
the miracle? God's, for this is His world.
The three were found walking the big furnace floor,
the king had to see it, but then he saw... four.
Angelic, the presence, protecting the three,
so no one was injured and that he could see.
So from the hot furnace, the king brought them out.
Their God had protected and there was no doubt.
Nebuchadnezzar and all his men learned
that no single hair [on their heads] was burned.
So the king was convinced and then had become -
strong in their faith because their God won.
Yes, God is much bigger than all He created,
protects all his children - even if hated.
The moral to story, of this Bible poem?
Follow God faithfully. Just start to know Him -
and next time you're tested, threatened or tried,
smile through your trials. Let God be your guide.
