"The Lions Weren't Hungry Last Night"

While preparing the sermon for the service this Sunday, I came across a song about Daniel in the lions' den entitled "The Lions Weren't Hungry Last Night," written by BMG Band in 2008. It's a good children's song and I thought it's worth sharing here.




There once lived a good man named Dan

The best man that lived in the land

So honest and just that King Darius

Made Daniel his next in command


But there were some very mean men Who did not like Dan the king’s friend So jealous were they that they planned out a way To throw Dan in the lion’s den


The lions are hungry tonight they sang The lions are hungry tonight They’ve not eaten dinner We think that they might The lions are hungry tonight they sang The lions are hungry tonight


The king was as sad as could be But could not reverse the decree He prayed the night through and skipped dinner too Then ran the next morning to see


The lions are hungry tonight they sang The lions are hungry tonight They’ve not eaten dinner We think that they might The lions are hungry tonight they sang The lions are hungry tonight


The king cried Oh Daniel my friend I’m wondering how have you been And how is the weather Are you still together? Did God keep you safe in the den?


And then the most wonderful thing That’s ever been heard by the king Down deep in the den stood ol’ Dan with a grin And this is the song he did sing


The lions weren’t hungry last night, oh king The lion’s weren’t hungry last night My guardian angel has shut their mouths tight The lions weren’t hungry last night, oh king The lions weren’t hungry last night


The story has something to tell A lesson to learn from Daniel When others mistreat you like lions that eat you It doesn’t help much if you yell

And so when your back’s to the wall Be good and love God through it all And then in the end you can sing with a grin Cause God’s always near when you call


The lions weren’t hungry last night you’ll sing The lions weren’t hungry last night My guardian angel has shut their mouths tight. The lions weren’t hungry last night you’ll sing The lions weren’t hungry last night
