|Tune:||[Standing by a purpose true]|
|Composer:||Philip Paul Bliss|
1. Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God’s command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniel’s band!
Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.
2. Many mighty men are lost
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host
By joining Daniel’s band. [Refrain]
3. Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel’s band. [Refrain]
4. Hold the Gospel banner high!
On to vict’ry grand!
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Daniel’s band. [Refrain]
