Lyrics to Southern Gospel Songs From Brian Free and Assurance's "Real Faith"


Praying Man


Written by Ronnie Hinson
As performed by Brian Free and Assurance
From the CD, “Real Faith”

Once there was a king that thought he got it right
Daniel won’t last until the morning light
They led him to the dungeon and they threw him in
He was on his way to supper and the meal was him
But God knew how to change their dinner plans
Never throw a hungry lion in the den with a praying man

Chorus
So pray Daniel Pray
That’s the way you make through
Come on pray Daniel pray
Don’t you let the devil get the best of you
Your troubles aren’t as bad as you thought they were
You can tame a lion, let your prayers be heard
Your faith is going to have them eating right out of your hands
Never throw a hungry lion in a den with a praying man

When you hear their stomachs growling do what Daniel did
Call up to your Father like a little kid
Tell Him that they are big and you just heard them roar
Then get up and use your faith to block the door
When the fur starts flying they will understand
Never throw a hungry lion in the den with a prayin’ man

Chorusx2
Never throw a hungry lion in a den with a prayin’ man
Never throw a hungry lion in a den with a prayin’ man

Real Faith


Written by Marty Funderburk and Tony Wood
As performed by Brian Free and Assurance
From the CD, “Real Faith”

Not some tragic struggle
Not some endless search
Just the story of some kids growing up in church
We took in every moment
With open eyes and ears
And one day took to heart what we saw in those years
And we saw....

Chorus
Real people with real struggles
Real lives bruised in real ways
And there was real joy
And real hope
And through it all we found real faith

We count it as a blessing to know such strength and peace
Oh not that they were perfect but they lived with honesty
And the evidence we witnessed daily in each life
Helped pave the way for us to embrace the love of Christ
And we knew...

Chorus

Remind us oh Father
That around us every day
The innocent eyes are watching
May they see our lives and say
I see....

Chorus
And through it all we found real faith
