Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 There is need for “Daniel men,”
In this world today;
Men who’re not afraid of men,
Not asham’d to pray.

Yes, the world needs “Daniel men,”
Men of faith and prayer,
Men who’re not afraid to stand
For Christ anywhere.

2 There is need for “Daniel men;”
Rout the sceptic band!
Bring God’s aid, thro’ earnest prayer,
With Him boldly stand. [Refrain]

3 There’s success for “Daniel men.”
God their cry will heed;
Ev’ry effort born of prayer
He will make succeed. [Refrain]
