Daniel in the Lion’s 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
