The King demands your worship, they were told.
Everyone must bow before the idol of gold.
The faith of the people wasn't very strong.
The music started playing, and they all went along.
But Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
said, "Nebuchadnezzar! The answer is NO!"
They said, "No how! No way!
Not now! Not today!
Some think it's foolish, but we know it's wise
to trust in the Lord and never compromise!
These men were well aware of what they had to lose,
but their faith made it easy for them to choose.
They said, "Our God can save us if it's His desire.
We'll walk with Him anywhere, even through the fire.
So it really doesn't matter, if the price is death.
Nebuchadnezzar, you're wastin' your BREATH!"
"Throw them in the furnace!" he said with a wicked smile.
"As hot as that fire is, it'll only take a little while."
But what a surprise, when he opened that door,
the three men were alive, and Jesus made it four.
Imagine the look on Nebuchadnezzar's face,
when one more time, they had to state their case!
