Dare To Be A Daniel

Here’s another famous Sunday School song. It was written by Philip P. Bliss for his Sunday school class at the First Con­gregational Church of Chicago, Illinois. Did you know that this hymn, along with “Hold The Fort” were prohibited by the Sultan from use in Turkey? (Sankey, Pg. 134)

Lyrics and Music: Philip P. Bliss

Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God’s command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniel’s band!

Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

Many mighty men are lost
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host
By joining Daniel’s band.

Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel’s band.

Hold the Gospel banner high!
On to vict’ry grand!
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Daniel’s band.
