Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

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 prayed 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 prayed three times a day,
Cut out he mountain without hands.
Drive the devil far away,
Cut out he mountain without hands.
