Lyrics and Chords: 3rd capo G Intro: Am / D / G / / / Am / D / G / / / /

3G

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,

D G

wouldn’t bow down low, to an idol made of gold.

So servants of the King reported them to him,

Am D G

for they wouldn’t do as they’d been told.

G

By order of the king when the people heard the choir

D G

of the zither, flute and lyre, the pipes and horns so clear.

They must bow down or else they’d feel the fire

Am D G / / / Am / D / G / / /

of the furnace down below.

So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

began to feel the pressure of Nebuch- adnezzar.

King he was, but also an aggressor,

if they wouldn’t do as they were told.

“I gave an order when you hear the choir

of the zither, flute and lyre, the pipes and horns so clear.

You must bow down or else you’d feel the fire

of the furnace down below.

But Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

said, “We must be bold, we serve a God of old.

No other gods, no images of gold,

will make us all bow low!”

By order of the king the heat was turned up higher;

the guards they all expired, when they threw them on the pyre.

The king saw a fourth man walking in the fire

of the furnace down below. / / / Am / D / G / E

A

“Oh Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,

E A

servants of the Lord! Come out! I’ll let you go!”

And out they came, unharmed and all aglow.

Bm E A

“No other god can save this way!

G A E A

“Praise be to him, today!”
