Chorus: We will not serve your god (We will not serve your god) We won't bow down before your image We will not serve your god (We will not bow) Jehovah is our King!
Nebuchadnezzer had built him an idol of gold- It was 90 feet high (and it was 9 feet wide) He gave the order that everyone fall down and worship- Or else they would die (Shadrach, Meshach) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego (would not bow down) Would not bow down they just firmly said no!
Furnace a blazin' the king was a ragin' with men who he wanted to die (he had them bound) Making them fodder he turned it up hotter to kill them- He cranked it up high (Thrown in the fire) Thrown in the fire to have them torched No one hurt they were not even scorched (were not even scorched)
So many idols and evil directions are give to us in our day (yes, every day) (so many idols are given) We make decisions that alter our pathways forever - defining our way (we make decisions forever) (Satan is crafty) Satan is crafty in selling sin (we won't give in) We won't be taken, no we won't give in (won't give in)
Bridge: God is able to deliver us No matter how hot the fire is raging But even if He does not deliver us We won't bow down in a million - million years
Repeat Chorus (without stepouts)
Jehovah is our King Jehovah is our King (our King)
"King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, ninety feet high and nine feet wide, and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon . . . Then the herald loudly proclaimed, 'This is what you are commanded to do, O peoples, nations and men of every language: As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace' . . . 'But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon--Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego--who pay no attention to you, O king. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.' Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king . . . Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.' Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace . . . They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them." Daniel 3:1,4-6,12-13,16-20,27
