Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel?

Full Text

Refrain:
Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,
deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel,
Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,
An’ why not-a every man.

1 He delivered Daniel from the lion’s den,
an’ Jonah from the belly of the whale;
An’ the Hebrew children from the fiery furnace,
An’ why not every man. (refrain)

2 The win’ blows eas’ an’ de win’ blows wes’,
It blows like de judgament day;
An’ ev’ry po’ soul dat never did pray’ll
be glad to pray dat day. (refrain)

3 I set my foot on de gospel ship,
an’ de ship begin to sail;
It landed me over on Canaan’s shore,
An’ I’ll never come back no more. (refrain)
