Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When tempted to do that which you know to be wrong,
Be a hero! Be a hero!
If others are weak, it’s up to you to be strong,
Be a hero! Be a hero!

Refrain:
Dare to be a Daniel brave and true;
Listen when your conscience speaks to you;
Keep the golden rule in all you do—
Be a hero!

2 Shrink not from a duty whatsoever it be,
Be a hero! Be a hero!
Shun all kinds of evil; from the ungodly flee,
Be a hero! Be a hero! [Refrain]

3 Be strong to defend the weak against every foe—
Be a hero! Be a hero!
Be helpful and brave, your Christian colors to show—
Be a hero! Be a hero! [Refrain]

4 Like Stephen, the martyr, faithful be to the end,
Be a hero! Be a hero!
The arm of the Lord is mighty—strong to defend,
Be a hero! Be a hero! [Refrain]
