Old Testament


Daniel (12 chapters), writing from Babylon,
A faithful Jew in exile, is the future shown.
Jesus is glimpsed oft - in chapter two He's a stone,
Shattering the world's kingdoms, filling all alone.
In three, with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
We see in fiery furnace one "like God's Son" show.
In sev'n before the throne He's giv'n dominion
By the Ancient of Days, an eternal kingdom.
In nine His very death for us is prophesied -
"Cut off" "to make reconciliation" He died.
The book foretells, last chapter, the dead'll resurrect,
Some to shame, some shining like stars - God's own elect.
