Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel?

Full Text

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,
deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel,
Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,
An’ why not-a every man.

1 He delivered Daniel from the lion’s den,
an’ Jonah from the belly of the whale;
An’ the Hebrew children from the fiery furnace,
An’ why not every man. (refrain)

2 The win’ blows eas’ an’ de win’ blows wes’,
It blows like de judgament day;
An’ ev’ry po’ soul dat never did pray’ll
be glad to pray dat day. (refrain)

3 I set my foot on de gospel ship,
an’ de ship begin to sail;
It landed me over on Canaan’s shore,
An’ I’ll never come back no more. (refrain)
