DANIEL AND
THE LION'S DEN

 

The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.

He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restores my soul.

 

Verse 1

Around 600 BC the Babylonians

Conquered the Israelites and took control of them

Daniel was one of them but God watched over him

And cuz he was a good man

The King looked over him

And put him in a high position as administrator

The others didn’t like him, he had plenty haters

But as much as they didn’t like it

They couldn’t get him fired

Cuz Daniel was just too righteous

And King Darius really liked him

But the haters caught his ears

And they over hyped him (Hey, do this, do this)

He made a law for 30 days you couldn’t pray

But Daniel loved the Lord so he prayed anyway

But the haters saw him

And took the news to the King (To the King)

Cuz they knew the consequences it would bring

Your majesty was sad, cuz he knew for his defiance

He’d have to throw Daniel in the den with the lions

 

Chorus

How would you feel if some haters want you killed

Cuz you tried to do right

By the King and never steal?

How would you feel?

What would you do?

Would you believe God gonna protect you?

How would you feel if some haters want you killed

Cuz you tried to do right

By the King and never steal?

How would you feel?

What would you do?

Would you believe God gonna protect you? Yeah

 

ACT 1

He leads me in the path of righteousness

for His namesake. And yea though

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil. For thou art with me.

Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

 

Verse 2

The King loved Daniel so he wouldn’t let it be

But he had to let it happen cause he signed the decree

(Signed the decree)

Couldn’t take it back, no sense in trying

And at sundown Daniel’s thrown to the lions

The King couldn’t sleep, he couldn’t eat a thing

He couldn’t help even though he was the King

Little did he know he had nothing to worry about

God sent an angel to shut every lion’s mouth

In the morning the King was so relieved

To see the death sentence just wasn’t meant to be

He jumped up and down and set him free

The haters went next for misleading the King

This time the lions began to eat

Every man inside the cave it was a feast

Many men doubted God but now they know He’s real

Cause He saved Daniel from getting killed

 

Chorus

How would you feel if some haters want you killed

Cuz you tried to do right

By the King and never steal?

How would you feel?

What would you do?

Would you believe God gonna protect you?

How would you feel if some haters want you killed

Cuz you tried to do right

By the King and never steal?

How would you feel?

What would you do?

Would you believe God gonna protect you? Yeah

 

ACT 2

Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

Thou anointeth my head with oil and

my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall

follow me all the days of my life.

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.

Forever.
