The Hero Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Don't you like to see the hero take his licks like a man
Stand up and be tested and be true?
Would you like to be a hero in your life? Well you can
Did you know it's up to you?

Would you trade your place with Jesus on the cross if you could
Shining through eternity?
Would it bother you to know that you can be just as good
As you really want to be?

And if you're bound to do your duty then it's time that you do
Look your future in the face
For the most important person in the world, which is you
Or the whole damn human race

There's a holy band of angels flying high through the night
Where no mortal ever trod
Singing holy, holy, holy, holy, oh, Jesus Christ
Is the Lord Almighty God

You see, the good thing is you
Don't have to be as good as Jesus to start out with
All you gotta do ask yourself
How would Gary Cooper have done it or John Kennedy
Or Martin Luther King or Malcolm X?

There's a holy band of angels flying high through the night
Where no mortal ever trod
Singing holy, holy, holy, holy, oh, Jesus Christ
Is the Lord Almighty God
