Daniel in the Den of Lions

Lyrics

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.
