Representative Text

1 On the battlefield of life
Be a hero!
In its turmoil and its strife
Be a hero!
Show your colors in the fight,
And, with sword and armor bright,
Strike out bravely for the right;
Be a hero!

Chorus:
Be a hero! (Be a hero!)
Trust in God and never hear!
Be a hero! (Be a hero!)
He will help you, He is near;
On, ye soldiers, to the fray,
Hear the great commander say,
"We shall surely gain the day!"
Be a hero!

2 There are giants in the land,
Be a hero!
In the strength of Jesus stand,
Be a hero!
In the name of Christ draw near,
Speak a word of hope and cheer,
Stay the tempter in his might;
Be a hero! [Chorus]

3 When you see a brother fall,
Be a hero!
Lend a helping hand to all,
Be a hero!
In the name of Christ draw near,
Speak a word of hope and cheer
Do what good you can while here;
Be a hero! [Chorus]
