A song that reminds me that Jesus Christ is the consummate ‘hero’ and He never fails me, even though I fall and fail Him again and again …



Lyrics

You Are My Hero

Seems like ‘most every time, I fail to stand my ground
I let the wiles of the devil ensnare me
And when the things of this world, (as always), let me down
And I cry out You’re always there for me
A place of refuge when there’s lightning in the sky
And I know you match me tear for tear every time I cry
You’re the rock that I can cling to when the world winds blow too high
A place that I can run to when there’s no place left to hide …

You are my hero, You are my Lord
You are my shelter in the darkness, my anchor in the storm
You are my knight in shining armor, my reason, my reward,
You are my hero, You are my Lord …

All the way from heaven’s throne to that ‘old rugged cross’
At the speed of love you came to set me free
Eternal shepherd come to seek and save the lost
Of those I know no one deserves You less than me
Still You love me and call me by my name
By Your stripes You healed me, across Your back You bore my shame
Chains of sin were broken, death was made a lie
And when Your final words of love were spoken

Your arms were open wide …
You are my hero, You are my Lord
You are my shelter in the darkness, my anchor in the storm
You are my knight in shining armor, my reason, my reward
You are my hero, You are my Lord …

You’re the only one who lived to die for me
Sinless Lord You came to sinful man so willingly
From that throne eternal to that cross on Calvary
Where Your blood could flow, cleanse my heart
And set me free …

You are my hero, You are my Lord
You are my shelter in the darkness
My anchor in the storm
You are my knight in shining armor
My reason, my reward
You are my hero, You are my Lord …
