God is on Your Side

There once was a man named Daniel

and for his faith, he was not bashful

He relied on God

and for that he was known abroad

He was able to interpret dreams

And so Nebuchadnezzar and other kings gave him esteem

Daniel had amassed great power

but it was all through God that he was like a chancellor

But some of the Administrators did not like him

So they went out on a limb

and told the King Darius that he should punish

anyone who prays to any god or man against the King’s wish

Now all the Administrators knew

that Daniel prayed night, moring, and noon

When Daniel heard the decree

he got down on a knee

and prayed to God for guidance

The Administrators saw and placed a grievance

to King, who tried to save

Daniel, but had no choice but to put him in a cave

A cave with hungry lions

The King, before the action

said to Daniel “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!”

A stone was brought over and the King sealed it with his ring, just before the lions were ready to chew

King Darius returned to his palace

but could not sleep through the night, for he was not heartless

At the first light of dawn

The King went to the den, whereupon

Daniel was not eaten in the least!

God closed the mouths of the beasts

At the King’s command

He brought the men who had had this plan

against Daniel to the den and before

they reached the floor

the lions over powered them

Now put your goings of life into this poem

You may be having it tough

and life is a bit rough

Times are hard

and you have your fair share of scars

But always remember, God is on your side

He is your guide

He is your shield and protector

But do not be upset when he doesn’t answer

the prayer you think the way he should

For his ways, to you, are not understood

You are God’s child

When He created you, He smiled

So whatever hardship you are going through

God knows you and the issue

and He will take care

Bring the problems to God in prayer

For He is forever and always on your side.
