His windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed.@Daniel 6:10

Thomas C. Neal, 1899, in Junior Praises, by James M. Black (Cincinnati, Ohio: Jennings & Pye, 1901), number 5 (🔊 pdf nwc).

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

Refrain

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

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

Refrain

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

Refrain

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