From the August 1935 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Because innocency was found in him,
We read, no shadowy vision dim
Was Daniel's, but perception clear,
That pierced the hatred and the fear
That would have stilled the holy power,
Reflected by him every hour.
And as he faced the angry throng
Of mortal thoughts, of cruel wrong,
He felt within his heart the peace
Of God, and knew that his release
Was near. Was not this very place
So filled with angel thoughts no trace
Of hurt was left? Thus violence stayed,
While Daniel stood till dawn all unafraid.
