Representative Text

1 Ye servants of the living God,
From Afric’s sunny shore,
Your deliverer praise with all your soul,
And to Egypt return no more.

Chorus:
Ny God delivered Daniel, Daniel, Daniel;
My God delivered Daniel, and why not deliver me?

2 We want no cowards in our band,
Who will their colors fly;
We call for valiant-hearted men,
Who’re not afraid to die. [Chorus]

3 Hold up your heads with courage bold
And do not be afraid,
For God has delivered Daniel,
And why not every man? [Chorus]

4 Three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace,
Daniel in the lions’ den—
My God delivered each of them,
And why not you and me? [Chorus]

5 Behold this army dressed in white;
How brave they do appear,
All dressed and armed in uniform,
They must be men of war. [Chorus]

6 O when you hear my heart-strings break,
How sweet my moments roll;
With a mortal paleness on my cheek
And glory in my soul. [Chorus]
