Representative Text

1 We need more men like Daniel
To stand for God and right;
Men clean and strong, who hate the wrong,
And for the truth will fight.
When those controlled by evil
Their base designs pursue,
We need more men like Daniel
Who never prove untrue.

Refrain:
In Home and Church and State,
Men quick to dare and do!
We need more men like Daniel
Who never prove untrue.

2 We need more men like Daniel
Their virtues here to show;
Men bold, sincere, who know no fear
When called to face the foe.
Though dangers dark may threaten,
They crave not ease or rest;
We need more men like Daniel
Who boldly stand the test. [Refrain]

3 We need more men like Daniel
Whose faith defied the king;
Who knelt and prayed, when plans were laid
His shameful death to bring.
But God sent down His angel
His all to guard and shield;
We need more men like Daniel
Whose hearts will never yield. [Refrain]
