King, king of them all,
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Beautiful Esther he chose for his bride,
But Esther had a secret, a secret to hide.
She was of Jewish decent,
Chosen people of God, for them was he sent.
Now the king’s main helper, Haman,
Had a problem with this;
For all the Jews in the kingdom he wanted to dismiss.
So he used his persuasion and spoke with the king,
“All Jews must go,” was what he said.
And the king signed a law that would find them all dead.
Now great danger came to all of the Jews,
Death and destruction was about to befall.
Could Queen Esther help? Was she up for the call?
Her cousin Mordecai came with the news,
“Esther,” he said, “You must save the Jews.
Use the position God has bless you with.
Perhaps this is the reason, for such times as this.”
So Esther prepared a dinner for three,
Haman she invited, the king and she.
Stepping out of line, to speak to the king,
Esther wasn’t sure what her bravery might bring.
She told him of her Jewish descent and fears for her life;
She told of Haman’s intent and strife.
The king was appalled by the plan and hate,
He hadn’t known this was Esther’s fate.
He fired Haman and sent him away,
Placed Mordecai in charge and let the Jews stay.
Esther lived on to be the king’s bride,
Always remembering God at her side.
