The Fourth Man Lyrics

The Fourth Man
(Arthur Smith)

Here is a story from the Good Book we know
A story 'bout a miracle that happened long ago
We hope that you'll take courage when temptation you meet
There's somebody watchin' you who's strong when you're weak.

Chorus:
They wouldn't bend
They held onto the will of God so we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees to the idol 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
Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego before the wicked king they stood
And the King commanded them bound and thrown
In the firey furnace that day.
But the fire was so hot that the men were slain
That forced them on their way.
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, and in astonished tones he spake.

Did we not cast three men bound into the midst a' that fire?
For lo, I see four men unhurt, unbound and walkin' down there
There's Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego in the firey coals they trod
And the form of the fourth man that I see is like the Son of God.

Did we not cast three men bound into the midst a' that fire?
For lo, I see four men unhurt, unbound and walkin' down there
There's Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego in the firey coals they trod
And the form of the fourth man that I see is like the Son of God.

Chorus:
They wouldn't bend
They held onto the will of God so we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees to the idol 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.

Chorus:
They wouldn't bend
They held onto the will of God so we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees to the idol 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.

Chorus:
They wouldn't bend
They held onto the will of God so we are told
They wouldn't bow
They would not bow their knees to the idol 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...
