The heavens were silent there was no pain The earth weeped in pain Nations were tremblin' and hope never came A terror filled the air And it wouldn't go away We needed a hero to come and saveFamine and hunger, Disease in the land The hatred the killing taking lives from your hand Creation waits through the darkness we pray Tell me where is the hero to come and saveThrough the nails Through the thorns From the hill to the graveWas a voice in the distance the lamb that was slain My soul had no song and my debt I couldn't pay When I needed a hero you came and you savedTo the homeless The widow The fatherless son To the sick and the broken alone with no one Lift up your head your hope is on the way When we needed a hero you came and you saved the dayWhen your blood caught the fall and took away every sin Even though men deny You're the only sacrifice That loved us enough you loved us so much Lord That you gave your life see you saved my life Now I can see you I'm no longer ashamed Your power I feel see our lives have exchanged Every wrong is erased, Jesus You are my hero you came and you saved the day[Bridge:]When the curtain had closed And it felt like the end When your blood caught the fall and took away every sin Even though men deny You're the only sacrifice That loved us enough you love us so much Lord That you gave your life see you saved my life Now I can see you I'm no longer ashamed Your power I feel see our lives have exchanged Every wrong is erased, Jesus You are my hero you came and you saved [x2]You are my hero you came and saved The day[Vamp:]You saved you saved the day [repeat]you are my hero you came and you saved the day god thank you
