God’s Truth-Tellers – Daniel (Trinity Season)

 
$5.00 (USD)

Daniel is one in a series about prophets  — God’s truth-tellers- as we call them.  These songs are for children, either in Vacation Bible School, Church School or with a children’s story in church. We developed a course about these prophets for adults. Daniel lives in exile in a foreign country.  He is trained to work in that nation’s  government.  But he and his friends maintain their faith, and because of it, risk their lives.  Later, he interprets the king’s dream and is given a high office.  The book of Daniel is known also for its predictions about the distant future.

Please God, make us your truth-tellers.

God chose Daniel as a prophet.
To this exile, God said, “Don’t sit!”            [spoken or shouted by children!]
“Time now, King’s man, go share my plan.”
God’s truth will be grand.
