Daniel. The Man Of God - Poem by margaret haig

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.
