IT TAKES A HERO

It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.
Takes a man to ride in the saddle.
A man who faces a gun with a gun.
Hero is one who faces God's Son.
To be a soldier brave and true,
Be a soldier that fights for me and you.
One soldier that knows this is true through and through.
Of death to the hero that died so that I may live.
Those heroes that live, live to give.
Men are not counted as heroes in this life,
Who don't take up a gun to fight for freedom.
Goes to battle not knowing if he will come back alive,
Into the arms of Jesus, a christian will survive.
Battle is fought in the spirit war.



''It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.''

Norman Schwarzkopf
