Consult every book, magazine or manual,
And you’ll never find a greater believer than Daniel.
At the Daniel whose name is the name of a Book
In the Bible, take a long look
At the courage, the faith, the true love of the Lord
That this Daniel had. His God he adored.
He had faith like a knight in shining armor.
He was handsome, wise, and a real charmer.
One day another Daniel was deeply engrossed in God’s Word
When a really cute girl said, “That’s so absurd
For you to be wrapped up so tight in that Book
That you haven’t taken a really good look
At me, ‘cause I love you and I want a kiss,
I don’t want to live the rest of my life as a Miss.
So put down that Bible and give me a smack
And you’ll find that I will kiss you right back.
We can go on and on like that for hours,
And when we’re done we’ll need cold showers!”
Now the girl was gorgeous and that’s the truth
Daniel had watched her at a kissing booth.
He’d not kissed her himself but just watched in awe
As guy after guy kissed her and then he saw
Them stagger away in ecstasy,
Delirious. Happy as can be.
Daniel told her flat out, “No,
You’re too fast for me. I want to go slow.
There’s a lot more I want to happen in my life
Before I find the woman I want for a wife.”
“Well, then quit talking about marriage, let’s make love
That’s what God is, so it comes from above.
He wants you to experience abundant life
You can’t do that without me.” She cut like a knife
At his willpower, because as she drew close
Her perfume got to him, she’d taken a dose
Of it and it smelled so sweet.
Daniel was suddenly swept off his feet.
“Pucker up, baby!” the Delilah said,
And Daniel thought, “I wish I was dead.
Because I know this isn’t God’s will for me,
But my sins are forgiven since Christ died on that tree.
Whatever I do is washed in Christ’s blood,
Why not make love?” Then came a thud
As Daniel’s Bible hit the ground
And like an alarm clock, that very sound
Got his attention and he suddenly prayed,
“God, help me!” And no time delayed
The strength came from the Lord to resist,
Later Daniel thought, “What if we’d kissed?
How far could temptation have taken me
Away from God’s will and His destiny
That He’s planned for me since before I was born?
Wow! Like Sampson, I was almost shorn!”
But the Lord is a mighty help in trouble
He’ll deliver you, and that goes double
For times of temptation that seem really hard
Until He has your angel set a guard.
It was Daniel’s angel that pushed the Book
From his hand that day and made him look
At what almost happened with that pretty girl
Who had his brain in such a whirl.
And to all who think guys like Daniel are geeks,
He’s getting married in just two weeks
To a Christian lady who in every way
Would blow that other girl away.
They’ll be partners for life, with joy every day,
Following Jesus, together they’ll pray.
And what if he’d instead married that lustful youth?
He’d have lost her forever at a kissing booth!
