The jailer is quite an interesting tale
In the Bible, in the tail
The prisoners could've bailed
But didn't, being jailed.

They obeyed authority
Jailed by majority
Happily singing songs to Him,
And had a crowd, in the dim.

What Christian story is explained, and who is "Happily singing songs"?



Answer

The Phillipian Jailer is the story, and Paul and Silas are singing songs.

Paul was originally named Saul before he met Jesus on the road to Damascus. Silas is one of the famous companions of Paul. The story is in Acts 16, toward the ending of the Bible, thus "In the tail," The lights were out as they were singing, thus "In the dim." The other prisoners were listening, thus "Had a crowd."

Your rhymes are awkward,
Your meter lacks beat,
But your story selection
Is really a treat!

So I'll sing your praises
As Paul and Silas sang hymns
To cheer their companions
As the prison light dims.
