Was he confident in Your plan for him?
Did his heart race fast with unchecked fear?
|"Daniel's Answer to the King" by Briton Rivier|
Did he pray silently to You?
Was he afraid to make a move?
At what point did his fear subside?
When was he comfortable inside?
Did the lions nuzzle up to him in that place?
Did they sniff him out, breathe on his face?
Did they wander around in that place unbothered?
Did their ears perk up as he called to you Father?
When the king came calling, did the lions arise?
When he shouted his greeting, was there hope in his eyes?
When the response came, did his heart soar?
Was the moment punctuated with a lion's roar?
Daniel - servant, prophet, faithful
Lions - creatures, passive, powerful
King - tricked, trapped, released
A wonderful story of God, man and beast.
