660. Standing by a purpose true

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 thro' 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 host defy,
And shout for Daniel's band. [Refrain]
