Daniel was a Man of Prayer: Daniel 6 (to the tune: ‘London Bridge is falling down’)
Lyrics and Chords: 3rd capo G Intro: D / / / G / : / / / /
Daniel was a man of prayer.
He prayed here, he prayed there;
prayed about just anywhere,
despite those who opposed him. D / / / G /
Darius was the king back then,
appointed many serving men.
He promoted one of them;
he admired Daniel
Jealous servants told the king,
all should worship only him.
They knew this law would be a sin
for poor Daniel
The wicked servants got their way,
just like hawks, watched each day.
Arrested Daniel straight away
when they caught him praying.
The law could not be changed by then,
so these scheming gentlemen,
threw him in a lions’ den.
This is what they wanted.
The king was sad, that he’d agreed
Daniel should be lion feed!
So next morning ran with speed,
to see if he was living.
“An angel sealed the lions’ jaws!”
cried Daniel, “King, I’m truly yours!”
So into the den instead,
went those who had opposed him.
