During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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]
