Representative Text

1 See the captive Daniel kneeling at his prayer,
Fearless of the king’s decree;
True to God and conscience, strong to do and dare,
Heeding not the tempter’s plea.

Trusting in His might, stand for God and right,
Fearless of the world’s decree;
Be loyal and true, in whatever you do,
In the service of the Lord be free!

2 Death and torture threatened in the lion’s den,
All who dared to offer prayer;
’Twas a heathen mandate governed conscience then—
Daniel stood, a hero there! [Refrain]

3 ’Mid the roaring lions Daniel stood serene,
For the King of kings was there;
Thus the great Deliv’rer watches near, unseen,
All who bravely do and dare. [Refrain]

4 By the prophet’s side God’s angel stayed that night—
Never did he flinch or yield;
Thus this dauntless hero, true to God and right,
Did a holy influence wield. [Refrain]
