Dare to Be for God (Poem)

“Dare to be a Daniel; Dare to stand alone; Dare to have a purpose firm; Dare to make it known” — Philip Paul Bliss

Dare to be a Joseph
Dare to flee from sin
Dare to live a righteous life
Regardless of the woes

Dare to be a Job
Dare to honour God
Dare to live righteously
Even when in pain

Dare to be like Jesus
Dare to honour God
Dare to live for a purpose
Dare to fulfil it

Dare to be an Elisha
Dare to leave all
Dare to have a pursuit
Dare to not give up

Dare to be like Naaman
Dear to seek for help
Dare to be humble as you seek for it
And do say “Thank you!” when you have been helped

Dare to be a Paul
Dare to live for Christ
Dare to uphold Him
Wherever you go

Dare to be a Moses
Dare to obey God
Dare to lead with meekness
Though thy authority

Dare to be an Enoch
Dare to walk with God
Dare to be willing
To abide with Him

Dare to be an Elijah
Dare to abide with God
Even when you feel alone
Dare to trust Him still

Dare to be a Peter
Dare to be remorse when you go astray
Dare to leave your sin
And do love the Lord

Dare to be among the Hebrew brethren
Dare to uphold God
Though the furnace rages hot
Dare to die for Him

Dare to be like Caleb
Dare to trust the Lord
Though thy enemies are like giants
Dare to trust God will fight for you

Dare to be like Abraham
Dare to live by faith
Dare to follow God
Wherever He leads

Dare to be an Israel
Dare to seek for change
Dare to pray fervently
Till thy change comes

Dare to be like David
Dare to please the Lord
If you ever find sin in thee
Dare to seek God’s face

Dare to have a faith so strong
Like the bleeding ma’am
Dare to strive for breakthrough
Dare to touch Christ’s hem

Dare to be a Mary
Dare to be pure
Dare to honour God’s will
Dare to do His command

Dare to be like Joseph (the carpenter)
Dare to be patient
Even when you don’t understand God’s command
Dare to obey Him

Dare to be a Dorcas
Dare to help the poor
Dare to live for others
As the Lord lived for us

Dare to have faith
Like the Centurion
Dare to trust in God’s power
Dare to believe His authority

Dare to have faith
Like blind Bartimaeus
Even when the crowd hush you shut
Dare cry out to Christ

Dare to live in obedience
Dare to do God’s will
Dare to say NO to sin
Dare to die in Christ

Dare to be a Daniel
Dare to stand alone
Dare to have a purpose firm
Dare to make it known

- Philip Paul Bliss
