Walking Through the Flames

I mentioned in the previous post that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s faith in knowing that God could deliver them from the fiery furnace in and their resolution to believe in Him even if He didn’t paralleled Heather’s faith in the midst of finding out she had a brain tumor. Since then a song has been running through my mind based on that passage in Daniel 3.

Walking Through the Flames

Words and music by Jeanine Drylie

Many years ago In a time of woe
Three young men faced a bitter test.
For the king decreed that they not be freed,
But instead he had bound them fast
Because they would not bow the knee except to God on high.
Into the flames they fed the same, these men were bound to die

 

But who would have thought that the flames would set them free?
And who would have thought that they’d gain the victory?
When with God our lot we cast,
We have more than we could ask
We’ll go walking through the flames with the Son of God.

 

When this evil king had performed this thing,
He sat down upon his throne.
But when he took yet a second look
He cried out with astonished tone,
“Did we not cast into the fire a group that numbered three?
Now they’re walking round as though unbound with a fourth like Deity!”

 

 

But who would have thought that the flames would set them free?
And who would have thought that they’d gain the victory?
When with God our lot we cast,
We have more than we could ask
We’ll go walking through the flames with the Son of God.

God has made it known to His very own
Tribulations they must bear.
For this world is not any friend to God.
In His cross we have a share.
But when the hour of trial comes and fire is all around
We’ll find the place we’re walking on is really holy ground.

 

 

And praise be to God that the flames will set us free
And praise be to God, we shall gain the victory.
When with God our lot we cast,
We’ll have more than we could ask.
We’ll go walking through the flames with the Son of God.

When with God our lot we cast,
We’ll have more than we could ask.
We’ll go walking, walking, walking through the flames with the Son of God.
With the Son of God!

  1. I heard that song years ago and forgot everything about it except parts of the tune and some of the chorus. I looked for it all over the Internet and couldn’t find anything like it. Thanks so much for posting this! Now that I know the title I still can’t find it in any hymnals.

  2. My pastor and his three sons sang this song October 28th on our special request day. Since then I’ve copied the CDs we made that Sunday and gave them away as gifts. This song walking through the flames seems to be a favorite with a lot of the recipients. Praise be to God for always being with us in all our trials. We shall and have gained the victory!

  3. Wow, I just heard this song on the radio (90.7 FM in Eastern N.C. or http://www.fbnradio.com) and loved it, so I looked it up on the internet and was able to hear it again! It moves me to tears–I am so glad to know Jesus as my Saviour and to have Him with me through every trial! What a privilege to walk with Him!

Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you, but please keep it civil. Thanks!
