Refrain:
Daniel saw the stone,
Rolling, rolling,
Daniel saw the stone
Cut out the mountain without hands.

1 Never saw such a man before,
Cut out the mountain without hands.
Preaching gospel to the poor,
Cut out he mountain without hands. [Refrain]

2 Daniel pray'd in the lions' den,
Cut out he mountain without hands.
Spite of all those wicked men,
Cut out he mountain without hands. [Refrain]

3 Daniel pray'd three times a day,
Cut out he mountain without hands.
Drive the devil far away,
Cut out he mountain without hands.
