108. Our Heroes

1 Here’s a hand to the fellow with courage
To do what he knows to be right,
When he falls in the way of temptation,
And has a hard battle to fight.
Who strives against self and his comrades
Will find a most powerful foe,
All honor to him, if he conquers,
A cheer for the one who says “No!”
He’s a hero, He’s a hero,
To win for the right against wrong.

2 There’s many a battle fought daily
The world knows nothing about,
There’s many a brave silent soldier
Whose strength put a legion to rout.
And he who fights sin single-handed
Is more of a hero, I say,
Than he who leads soldiers to battle,
And conquers by arms in the fray.
He’s a hero, He’s a hero,
To win for the right against wrong.

3 Be steadfast, my friend, when you’re tempted,
And do what you know to be right.
Stand firm by the colors of manhood,
And you will o’ercome in the fight.
“The right” be your battle cry ever
In waging the warfare of life;
And God who knows who are the heroes,
Will give you the strength for the strife.
Be a hero, Be a hero,
To win for the right against wrong.
