The 3

Daniel 3

The King said,

“Go now, go, go,

you should all bow

bow right now

and worship the idol.

I am the King so make it so.”

3 replied,

“No way, no, no,

we will not bow

not then or now

and worship the idol,”

said Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

The King said,

“I must insist

by solemn vow

you will bow

and worship the idol.

You must obey this.”

3 replied,

“Our God can save we know

but if not

we will not be caught

worshipping an idol,”

said Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

The King said,

“Heat up the fire.

You 3 will die now

since you did not bow

and worship the idol

according to the King’s desire.”

3 replied,

“We willingly go

and die by fire

as we said prior

we will not worship the idol,”

said Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

The King said,

“Throw them in.

Let them burn

so all will learn

to worship the idol

and the King will win.”

3 went in

to death they did go.

But to his surprise

before the King’s eyes

shattering his myth of an idol

There stood another with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

4 stood

unhurt by flame.

They did not fall

a lesson for all

not to worship an idol

but trust in the Sure Name.

The King said,

“Let everyone know

I can see

everyone should be free

to worship the true God

of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.”
