Dare to be a Daniel
Words and Music by Phillip P. Bliss

Daniel 1:8
"But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the
portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank:  therefore
he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself."

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

            Chorus
            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.

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

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

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

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

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