Paul Robeson

"Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" (karaoke)

"Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" (sheet music)


Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

An’ why not-a every man?

 

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

An’ why not-a every man?

 

He delivered Daniel from the lion’s den,

Jonah from the belly of the whale,

An’ the Hebrew chillun from the fiery furnace,

An’ why not every man?

 

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

An’ why not-a every man?

 

The moon run down in a purple stream;

The sun forbear to shine.

An’ every star disappear:

King Jesus shall-a be mine!

 

The wind blows east an’ the wind blows west;

It blows like the judg-a-ment day.

An’ ev’ry poor soul that never did pray’ll

Be glad to pray that day!

 

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

An’ why not-a every man?

 

I set my foot on the Gospel ship,

An’ the ship begin to sail.

It landed me over on Canaan’s shore,

An’ I’ll never come back no more!

 

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?

Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel,

An’ why not-a every man?
