To learn something new and share it with others is decidedly, wonderfully good to me.
This morning as I was "googling" an old Sunday School song, I learned accidentally that the words I'd learned as a child were merely the smaller lines of a great hymn.
Blessed by the weighty stanzas, I offer them as a contribution to your day supposing they will inspire you as they have me.

Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God's command,
Honor them, the faithful few,
All hail to Daniel's band.

Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone;
Dare to have a purpose true;
Dare to make it known.

Many mighty men are lost,
Daring not to stand;
Who for God had been a host,
By joining Daniel's band.

Many giants great and tall,
Stalking through the land;
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel's band.

Hold the Gospel banner high,
On to victory grand;
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Daniel's band.

Daniel's will to be obedient to God overshadowed his desire to be favored by men.
When God becomes our primary audience and our lives revolve around a "resolve" for Him, all things around us are ordered and made clear.
Praise be to our God.
