Dare To Be a Daniel

Daniel 1:8, Daniel 6:10-11; Acts 16:25-28

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 thro' 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 host defy,
And shout for Daniel's Band!

I saw this mentioned somewhere a while a Good News Magazine article I think. This is one of the good songs. It talks about courage and being faithful and willing to stand for what you believe in.

I remember singing lots of songs at church when I was little. They had a lot of songs to help teach kids Bible stories. This is one of those. I haven't heard it sung anywhere in ages.

I suppose some churches do still teach these songs to the kids. And maybe home-schools do as well. I hope they are not being completely forgotten. Do your kids know this song? What other Bible/church songs do they know?

1970 we sung this. Boys dressed in "Leave it to Beaver " clothing chasing the Goliath away from them holding the sword of truth. Blessings
