Louis Armstrong – The Story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRT3J3pDpc4&feature=player_detailpage

There was three children from the land of Israel . . Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego Took a trip to the land of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon He took a lot of gold and made an idol And he told everybody when you hear the music of the cornet And he told everybody when you hear the music of the flute And he told everybody when you hear the music of the horn You must fall down and worship the idol But the children of Israel would not bow down Wouldn’t fool em with a golden idol I said you couldn’t fool em with a golden idol

So the king put the children in a fiery furnace He thrown coal and red-hot brimestone Seven times hotter hotter than it oughta be Burned up the soldiers that the king had put there But the Lord sent an angel with the snowy white wings Down in the middle of the furnace Talking to the children about the power of the gospel Well they couldn’t even burn a hair on the head of Shadrach Laughing and talking while the fire is jumping around Old Nebuchadnezzar called “Hey there!” when he saw the power of the Lord And they had a big time in the house of Babylon.
