Lyrics: ESTHER by Adrienne Foster Potter <br/>VERSE 1 <br/>The King of Babylon had a giant feast for all the princes in the land, <br/>But when he asked his lovely Queen to come, she refused the King's command. <br/>So he removed her from her royal place and sent for all the maidens in the land; <br/>Esther was the fairest one of all and she accepted her King's hand. <br/>CHORUS: <br/>Esther was a woman of the Lord, <br/>Living in a Kingdom of the sword; <br/>When her Master called for her, <br/>Esther served the Lord. <br/>VERSE 2 <br/>When Esther was a babe, both her parents died, and cousin Mordecai was next of kin; <br/>Then they were forced to go to Babylon, it was a war they could not win; <br/>And Now Esther was the favorite of the King, for she and Mordecai saved his life, <br/>But Haman wished to murder all the Jews, which would include the King's own wife. <br/>VERSE 3 <br/>So Esther asked the Jews all to fast and pray for three long days and three long nights; <br/>And then she risked her life to see the King, asking him to make things right. <br/>The King sentenced Haman to hang upon the gallows and put Mordecai in Haman's place; <br/>How the Jews rejoiced and thanked the Lord for His kind and loving grace.
