she learned her lessons well,
with cousin Mordecai, she did dwell.
She learned lessons of virtue,
and they served her well,
into the castle, she was propelled.
Ugly Mr. Haman with pride did swell,
and wanted to kill God’s people,
God’s Word does tell.
God’s plan is not thwarted,
this we can tell,
God had a virtuous maiden that heard so well.
She saved God’s chosen people,
by planning well.
She’s honored as a heroine Jews do tell.
And for such a time as this as this,
I was raised for a time such as this.
And if I Perish, I Perish for God,
For such a time as this!

A poet, and don’t know it.
It is hard too not let the poet out.
Nice poem. If you do not mind I would like to quote you at church on Wednesday. We are studying Esther and this poem would be a great addition to our study.
Bro. Use what ever you want. My blessings. ESther is an excellent study.
