She’s on her own, two girls at home

Thirteen years just up and walked away

And left her all alone

With bills to pay and mouths to feed

And every day she’s taking care of everybody else’s needs

 

But shes finding her strength in the One love that wont ever leave her

So she works and she prays and she loves and she stays cause they need her

 

CHORUS:

These are the heroes, just ordinary people

Laying down their lives like angels in disguise

They’re weak but always willing

They dare to do the hard things

And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes

You’ll find the heroes

You’ll find the heroes

 

He walks the halls, against the flow

He sees his high school as his mission field

He’s broken cause he knows

The hopeless road that they are taking

The empty feelings they are chasing only lead to futures wasted

So he’s willing to stand alone

 

He lives what he believes when they all say its not worth believing

Every night on his knees, he prays God, wont You please help me reach them?

 

CHORUS:

These are the heroes, just ordinary people

Laying down their lives like angels in disguise

They’re weak but always willing

They dare to do the hard things

And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes

You’ll find the heroes

You’ll find the heroes

 

You may never know their names

But they’re moving mountains just the same

Instead of searching for the spotlight

They’ll follow Jesus into the darkest night

 

Heroes, these are the heroes

 

CHORUS:

These are the heroes, just ordinary people

Laying down their lives like angels in disguise

They’re weak but always willing

They dare to do the hard things

And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes

You’ll find the heroes

You’ll find the heroes

 

In the board room with a Bible (You’ll find the heroes)

In the classroom praying for revival (You’ll find the heroes)

In third world countries, in downtown missions (You’ll find the heroes)
