The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Daniel Prayed

I heard about a man one day who wasted not his time away
He prayed to God every morning noon and night,
He cared not for the things of man he trusted one who never failed
Oh, Daniel prayed every morning, noon, and night.

Oh, Daniel served the living God while here upon this earth he trod
He prayed to God every morning noon and night
He cared not for the kings decree he trusted God to set him free
And he prayed to God every morning, noon, and night

Chorus, harmony lines
Daniel served; Here he trod . . . Cared not for; King's degree

They cast him in the lion's den because he would not honor men,...
The jaws were locked and it made him shout, and God soon brought him safely out,...

Now brother, let us watch and pray like Daniel did from day to day,...
We too can gladly dare to do the things that God will take us through,...
