The Fourth Man In The Fire

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
Here is a story from the Bible that we know
A story about a miracle that happened long ago
Let’s all have courage when temptations we meet
There’s Somebody watching who’ll be strong when we’re weak

Johnny: They wouldn't bend
Carter Sisters: They held on to the will of God so we are told
Johnny: They wouldn't bow
Carter Sisters: They would not bow their knees to the idols made of gold
Johnny: They wouldn't burn
Carter Sisters: They were protected by the Fourth Man in the fire
All: They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, they wouldn't burn.


Johnny:
Now the prophet Daniel tells about
Three men who walked with God
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
Before the wicked king they stood
Now the king commanded them bound and thrown
Into the fiery coals that day
But the fire was so hot the men were slain
It forced them on their way.

Johnny: They wouldn't bend
Carter Sisters: They held on to the will of God so we are told
Johnny: They wouldn't bow
Carter Sisters: They would not bow their knees to the idols made of gold
Johnny: They wouldn't burn
Carter Sisters: They were protected by the Fourth Man in the fire
All: They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, they wouldn't burn.


Johnny:
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
In astonished tones he spake
Did we not cast three men bound
Into the midst of the fire
June: Yeah.
I believe I see four men unhurt
Unbound and walking down there
I see Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
And the fiery coals they trod
But the form of the Fourth Man that I see
Is like the Son of God


Johnny: They wouldn't bend
Carter Sisters: They held on to the will of God so we are told
Johnny: They wouldn't bow
Carter Sisters: They would not bow their knees to the idols made of gold
Johnny: They wouldn't burn
Carter Sisters: They were protected by the Fourth Man in the fire
All: They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, they wouldn't burn.

Carter Sisters They wouldn't bend
Johnny: They held on to the will of God so we are told
Carter Sisters: They wouldn't bow
Johnny: They would not bow their knees to the idols made of gold
Carter Sisters They wouldn't burn
Johnny: They were protected by the Fourth Man in the fire
All: They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, they wouldn't burn.
They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, they wouldn't burn
