True Independence

The little maid who tended Naaman's wifeAnd Daniel, who survived the lions' den,Were God's ambassadors. They knew the strifeOf forced enslavement by ungodly men,Yet both could think as independentlyAs when they freely moved with their own kind.Thus holding captive their captivity,They both retained the freedom of the mind.

The tender maid, as truly as the sage,Remembered God and turned to Him in prayerWhen trials came upon an alien stageAnd there was need of His protecting care.Both kept their sacred rights and trust in goodWhile serving in the midst of pagan things,And by their independent humanhoodThey turned their masters to the King of kings.
