165. Be a Hero

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]
