DANIEL IN THE LION’S DEN…POEM

James P. Gram

Daniel 6

King Darius’s rule held mighty sway
And it’s still famous to this day;
He needed help to justly run
The lands he had by conquest won

So Darius made some presidents
Appointed three distinguished gents;
But Daniel out of all the rest
Darius liked the very best

Seeing what the king had done
By making Daniel number one;
The presidents and all their crew
Hated they were number two

So, jealous they continued on
To find a way to make him gone
At last the only flaw they saw
Was his adherence to the law

Now this law that they had in mind
Was not the law of human kind;
For Daniel worshipped God above
God of justice, peace and love

The presidents and all their ilk
Went in to Darius, smooth a silk
“All of us with one voice plead
That you will this petition read”

“O mighty king, there is no need
For anyone to others plead;
No need of gods, or even us
But just the mighty Darius”

“So if you sign this new decree
All complaints will come to thee;
For thirty days your stature will
Be greater with this newest bill”

So Darius signed, but never knew
That Daniel did not have a clue
Of what these wicked men intended:
Daniel’s life would soon be ended

Now Darius knew that Daniel’s day
Included not just work but pray;
So suddenly he saw the trap
If Daniel prayed he’d take the rap

“According to the new decree
All petitions come to me;
Daniel’s done. And this I rue
There’s really nothing I can do”.

He knew, as did the wicked band
A king’s decree just has to stand;
When Daniel prayed, they clearly saw
That he had up and broke the law

To break the law they thought it fair
To dine with lions in their lair;
Then Darius spoke and said “I pray
Your God will rescue you this day”

They then threw Daniel in the den
And quickly sealed it up again;
They all looked forward to the sight
That they would find in morning light

But Darius prayed throughout the night
And did not sleep; he thought “I might
For Daniel pray that his God too
Will find some help that He can do”

‘Twas early in the morning when
They gathered at the lions’ den;
And Darius said, “Hey Daniel, say
If you are still alive, OK?”

“Did God whom you still venerate
Save you from this awful fate?
Then came a voice, was hard to hear,
“My God has saved me, have no fear”

The King was glad, was heard to say
“Just roll that doorway stone away
And let poor Daniel come on out;
For he’s not hurt, we have no doubt”

“But now round up those wicked men
And bring them to the lions’ den;
Their wives and children, throw them in
Small punishment for all their sin

Then Darius made a new decree
And posted it for all to see;
“That from this day we worship Him
Who saved our Daniel’s life and limb






























If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

James, The only one in the story that got a decent night's sleep was Daniel.
