Many years later, there lived in Israel four young men named, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. One day King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and his army invaded Israel and captured many people, including Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and took them away to Babylon.
Because they were very good young men, the king decided to let them work for him in his palace. One night the king had an amazing dream, but he forgot what it was! He asked his wise men to tell him what he had dreamt, but they couldn’t. So, Daniel prayed, and God showed Daniel the dream, and he explained it to the king. The king was very pleased and made Daniel his chief advisor.
But then some evil men had Daniel thrown in with dangerous and hungry lions because they were jealous. However, God sent an angel to protect Daniel and keep the lions’ mouths shut so they couldn’t harm Daniel or even bite him.
Daniel, brave Daniel, was a man of prayer.
Daniel, brave Daniel, God kept him in His care.
Daniel prayed and he wasn't afraid
Of the king's decree.
He called his friends and he prayed with them,
"Lord, show the king's dream to me."
Daniel stood before the king
And told the king the truth,
"I know your dream and I'll tell you what it means,
God showed it to me too."
Daniel prayed and he wasn't afraid,
He didn't think of fear.
He bowed his head and he talked to God
With all the lions near.
In the morning when the sun came up,
The king called, "Daniel, are you there?"
Daniel shouted from the lions' den,
"God kept me in His care!"
[Repeat Chorus twice]
Daniel, brave Daniel. Brave Daniel!
