Lyrics
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 king's decree, but trusted God to set him free.
Old Daniel prayed every morning, noon, and night.
CHORUS: Old 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 things of Baal, but trusted God who'll never fail.
Old Daniel prayed every morning, noon and night.

They cast him in the lion's den because he would not honor men.
He prayed to God every morning, noon and night.
Their jaws were locked. It made him shout, and God soon brought him safely out.
Old Daniel prayed, etc.
Old 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 things of Baal, but trusted God who'll never fail.
Old Daniel prayed every morning, noon and night.

Oh, brothers let us watch and pray, like Daniel lived from day to day.
He prayed to God, noon and night.
We too can gladly dare and do the things of God; He'll see us through.
Old 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 things of Baal, but trusted God who'll never fail.
Old Daniel prayed every morning, noon and night.
