Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
