"The Fourth Man" lyrics

The Fourth Man

They wouldn't bend
They held on to the will of God
So we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees
To the idols made of gold

They wouldn't burn
They were protected
By the fourth man in the fire
They wouldn't bend
They wouldn't bow
They wouldn't burn

Now the prophet Daniel
Tells about
Three men who walked with God
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Before the wicked king they stood

And the king commanded them
Bound and thrown
Into the fiery furnace that day
But the fire was so hot
That the men were slain
That forced them on their way

They wouldn't bend
They held on to the will of God
So we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees
To the idols made of gold

They wouldn't burn
They were protected
By the fourth man in the fire
They wouldn't bend
They wouldn't bow
They wouldn't burn

Now when the three were cast in
And the king rose up
To witness this awful fate
He began to tremble
At what he saw
In astonished tones he spake

Did we not cast
Three men bound
Into the midst of the fire?
Well, Lo, I see four men unhurt
Unbound and walking down there

There's Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego
And the fiery coals they trod
But the form of the fourth man that I see
Is like the son of God

They wouldn't bend
They held on to the will of God
So we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees
To the idols made of gold

They wouldn't burn
They were protected
By the fourth man in the fire
They wouldn't bend
They wouldn't bow
They wouldn't burn

They wouldn't bend
They held on to the will of God
So we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees
To the idols made of gold

They wouldn't burn
They were protected
By the fourth man in the fire
They wouldn't bend
They wouldn't bow
They wouldn't burn
