Watch this great song about Esther from Buck Denver Asks What’s in the Bible?, the kids Bible DVD series from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer. In this song – from Volume 7: Exile & Return! [Ezra, Nehemiah & Esther] – Cap’n Pete sings the story of Esther.
Oh – you could go to college
You could take a whole semester
And never find a person who was half as brave as Esther
Beautiful and kindly – it was clear that God had blessed her
Read about her in the Bible in the book of Esther!
Xerxes was the Persian king who took some bad advice
Haman didn’t like the Jews – he wasn’t very nice
Picked a day to kill them all by rollin’ out some dice
But Esther’s got your number – Throwin’ dinner parties TWICE!
Watch out Haman
Kids will blot your name and
In the end you’re gonna die
The way you planned for Mordecai!
That’s our Esther!
Trials gonna test her!
But God is there to see you through
And He will save your people, too!
And the rescue plan goes on and on
And the rescue plan goes on!
