A Hymn: They Reject the Second Chance #2

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

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 #2

16. The great king became furious

In his rage he commanded

That they bring disobedient trio

But God saves His Own


17. In haste they dragged disobedient trio

To the presence of the king

Before the king they were standing

But God saves His Own


18. The King asks that they denounce

An’ renounce what he heard about them

But the trio uttered no word

But God saves His Own


19. I will give you another chance

To redeem your life the king says

Even to the three Hebrews

But God saves His Own


20. The three Hebrews replied the King

We would not have replied thee

But these few words we ‘ve to say

But God saves His Own


21. Know King we can’t be intimidated

By neither your words nor threats

For we know the God we serve

But God saves His Own


22. We know our God is able

To save us from blazin’ furnace

Yea even out of thine hand

But God saves His Own


23. But if he didn’t deliver us

We shall neither serve thy gods

Now worship the golden image

But God saves His Own


24. King ‘verwhelmed by the fury

Ordered f’rnace heated seven times more

And the trio be thrown to it

But God saves His Own


25. The trio fell into the blazing furnace

There Yahweh ‘ppeared unto them

And there he even set them free

For God, saves his own


26. King could not believe what he saw

Four men walking without hurt

Even in the blazing furnace

For God has saved his own


27. King calls his cabinet members

Pointing out what he hath seen

The fourth man is like Son of God

For God, has saved his Own


28. Then King shouted unto the trio

Ye servants of the most High God

Come out, come forth, come hither

For God has saved His Own


29. Then the King says unto all

After they ‘ve been examined

That all must worship their God

For God, has saved his own


30. Trust brethren, trust in the Lord

All ye who believed on Him

Waver thou not in thine faith

For God, ‘ll save his Own

In some respects, things haven't changed that much from the days of King Nebuchadnezzar, people tend to believe what the powers that be tell them to believe, no matter how absurd it is! The old saying applies that says, " any dead fish can go with the flow"!

God responds to faith, the Hebrew boys knew their God, they knew He was good and would deliver them one way or the other. They knew they could put their lives in His hands and he thoroughly delivered them! The kings servants perished as they threw the boys into the flames but their clothes didn't even retain a trace of smoke on them.

God honor's those who honor him!
