Esther was a very beautiful, but poor orphan.
She was also a Jew, that was her brand.
But they wanted Jews dead, that was their plan.
That’s when Esther decided to bravely take a stand.
King Ahasuerus wanted a new wife,
So all the women went to the palace, hoping to be picked.
Esther went too, hoping for a new life,
Then the king chose her, and he wasn’t even tricked.
Esther was happy she wore a crown on her head;
But they still wanted all the Jews dead!
She didn’t hide, but went to see the king instead.
After praying she went.
“If I perish, I perish,” she said.
The king loved her, so he listened to what she had to say,
Then he realized those who wanted Jews dead are evil.
He saved the Jews, and Esther saved the day.
Thank God she was able to stop a big upheaval.
