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. With the window open wide,
And the foe so near,
Daniel bows before his God,
Without doubt or fear.

Brave Daniel! brave Daniel!
Ever good and true;
If, like him, to God we’re faithful,
He’ll bring us safely through.

2. Hark! the voice of prayer and praise,
Full of joy and peace;
King’s decree and lion’s den
Cannot make it cease! [Refrain]

3. In the lion’s den, behold,
Daniel sweetly sleeps;
While the guardian angel there,
Holy vigil keeps. [Refrain]

4. God is watching o’er His own,
With all-seeing eye;
Vainly foes against them rage;
They but rage—and die. [Refrain]
