Lyrics and Information
Words by Philip P. Bliss (1838-1876), 1873Key Signature: B flat major (2 flats)Public Domain1. Standing by a purpose true, Heeding God’s command, Honor them, the faithful few! All hail to Daniel’s band!2. Many mighty men are lost, Daring not to stand, Who for God had been a host By joining Daniel’s band.3. Many giants, great and tall, Stalking thro’ the land, Headlong to the earth would fall, If met by Daniel’s band.4. Hold the gospel banner high! On to vict’ry grand! Satan and his host defy, And shout for Daniel’s band.Refrain: Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone! Dare to have a purpose firm! Dare to make it known.
