https://m.soundcloud.com/user-921599710/daniel-in-the-lions-den To govern at large, with depth and reason King Darius ruler of the kingdom Presidents for a land of size The king thought Daniel to be wise

Princes appointed honourably Filled with growing jealousy Daniel served so faithfully Others watched him carefully

Faultless find, a call to stay Devotion daily, time to pray A plot to have him done away Of treatment in a wicked way

A king with pride deep at the core Presidents helped to plan the law For no requests of thirty days Carried forth, unrighteous ways

Such flattery, from trusted men From Daniel’s prayer – into the den A law in place could not be changed A callous plan they did arrange

Into the pit, sat unreleased Sealed mouths of savage beasts For God knew they were guilty Daniel saved and rendered free

Injustice that was ensuing The truthful case of wrong-doing Into the pit, the men of wrong For there the righteous don’t belong
