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]
