Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

(It should be noted that the story composed into song is historical and have been composed in a historical format, even without the knowledge of music anyone who reads the wordings of the song would also love what he reads, for it is agelong history attested to by historians after several researches, that indeed there was once a man called Nebuchadnezzar who ruled the entire world during his days. I trust you will be blessed by the wordings of this song.)

The Composed Song #1

1. The great King Nebuchadnezzar

Who ruleth over the ancient world

Has set his golden image

But God saves His Own


2. He called captains, gov’nor and princes

Judges, treasurers, counselors

To come to the dedication

But God saves His Own


3. The sheriffs and all rulers

Of the provinces and of the lands

Were all invited to the dedication

But God saves His Own


4. The news of the dedication

Were heralded in a loud voice

To nook and crannies of the land

But God saves His Own


5. Musicians from all the lands

And all instrumentalists

Were gathered at plain of Dura

But God saves His Own


6. Different types of instruments

Like trumpets, zithers, harps an’ lyre

Were there to exalt the image

But God saves His Own


7. At a set time the king hath said

All humans on earth will hear

The sounds of these instruments

But God saves His Own


8. When they hear sounds of instruments

Being played by the musicians

He orders all to worship the image

But God saves His Own


9. He orders that all bow down

Yea, to worship the golden statue

Which he the king has set up

But God saves His Own


10. At the appointed time by the king

‘Nstrumentalists an’ Musicians

Even played all the instruments

But God saves His Own


11. Sounds of all the instruments

Were heard by all far and near

Many hast’n to obey the king

But God saves His Own


12. People from all the nations

They bowed to worship gold statue

Which the great king has set up

But God saves His Own


13. Three members of the king’s court

However did not bow down

To worship the golden image

But God saves His Own


14. Reports of their misdemeanor

Were taken unto the great king

The great king asks who they were

But God saves His Own


15. Shadrach, Meshach an’ Abednego

Were the names of the erring trio

They replied the king like that

But God saves His Own
