Daniel. The Man Of God

Daniel, was a prophet, and a man who loved the Lord,
He was taken from His family, read his story in the Word;
When the kings servants brought them food, Daniel wouldn't eat,
Daniel said God wanted them, to eat, vegies and meat.

Daniel was a friend, to shadach, meshach and abednego,;
The four were told to bow down, or into a fiery furnace would go;
They refused to do this, stood up their faith was strong,
And the wicked king said into the furnace is where you belong.

Daniel was a man of Prayer, he prayed morning, noon and night,
He trusted in the Lord so much, for the Lord ehe did right;
Some men were so jealous told the king make everyone ask of you,
And if they disobey the law, to the lions den they would go, it's true.

Daniel was a man of vision, he would see what would happen some day,
And told the kings about their dreams, he'd explain to them in a way;
Like nebudchunezzar who would become like a beast for a while,
And when this did happen, the king remembered, there was no smile.

Daniel was a man of faith, and we should learn from his life,
To trust and obey God, then we would not get into strife;
We need to pray like him, pray to the Lord 3 times a day,
we will live right, and not sin, for us it's the only way.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
