The Lions Weren’t Hungry Last Night

Song lyrics to ‘The Lions Weren’t Hungry Last Night’ – children’s song about the Biblical story of Daniel and the lions’ den

There once lived a good man named Dan
The best man that lived in the land
So honest and just that King Darius
Made Daniel his next in command

But there were some very mean men
Who did not like Dan the king’s friend
So jealous were they that they planned out a way
To throw Dan in the lion’s den

The lions are hungry tonight they sang
The lions are hungry tonight
They’ve not eaten dinner
We think that they might
The lions are hungry tonight they sang
The lions are hungry tonight

The king was as sad as could be
But could not reverse the decree
He prayed the night through and skipped dinner too
Then ran the next morning to see

The lions are hungry tonight they sang
The lions are hungry tonight
They’ve not eaten dinner
We think that they might
The lions are hungry tonight they sang
The lions are hungry tonight

The king cried Oh Daniel my friend
I’m wondering how have you been
And how is the weather
Are you still together?
Did God keep you safe in the den?

And then the most wonderful thing
That’s ever been heard by the king
Down deep in the den stood ol’ Dan with a grin
And this is the song he did sing

The lions weren’t hungry last night, oh king
The lion’s weren’t hungry last night
My guardian angel has shut their mouths tight
The lions weren’t hungry last night, oh king
The lions weren’t hungry last night

The story has something to tell
A lesson to learn from Daniel
When others mistreat you like lions that eat you
It doesn’t help much if you yell

And so when your back’s to the wall
Be good and love God through it all
And then in the end you can sing with a grin
Cause God’s always near when you call

The lions weren’t hungry last night you’ll sing
The lions weren’t hungry last night
My guardian angel has shut their mouths tight.
The lions weren’t hungry last night you’ll sing
The lions weren’t hungry last night

Like kittens they purr through the night you’ll sing
Like kittens they purr through the night
My guardian angel has shut their mouths tight
The lions weren’t hungry last night you’ll sing
The lions weren’t hungry last night
