We'll Be Heroes

Representative Text

1 We’ll be heroes, we’ll be heroes
When the battle is fierce;
When the raging storm louder grows
Will our courage increase
By the cross.

2 We shall conquer, we shall conquer
Through the blood of the Lamb;
We will ne’er retreat, though we die,
Till the conquest we’ve won
By the cross.

3 We are rising, we are rising,
And the foe shall be driv’n;
Then as warriors brave, let us sing,
We have vict’ry and heav’n
By the cross.

4 When we’re dying, when we’re dying
In the arms of His love,
On the wings of faith we’ll ascend
To the palace of God
By the cross.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
