I'm here without a doubt
An angel of the Lord with a very sharp sword
Kept the Lions away What a happy day
Then the King said pull him out (he did)

To be learnt in every school
From this day everyone will pray
To Daniel's wonderful powerful God
And that's my brand new rule (it is)
That's my brand new rule
