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!
