Don't you like to see the hero take his licks like a man
Stand up and be tested and be true
Would you like to be a hero in your life well you can did you know it's up to you
Would you trade your place with Jesus on the cross if you could
Shinin' through eternity
Would it bother you to know that you can be just as good as you really want to be
If you're bound to do your duty then it's time that you do
Look your future in the face
For the most important person in the world which is you or the whole damn human race
There's a holy band of angels flying high where no mortal ever trod
Singing holy holy holy holy oh Jesus Christ is the Lord Almighty God

You see the good thing is you don't have to be as good as Jesus to start out with
All you gotta do ask yourself, how would Gary Cooper have done it
Or John Kennedy or Martin Luther King or Malcom X
There's a holy band of angels...
(Holy holy holy holy holy holy holy holy oh
Holy holy holy holy holy holy holy holy oh)
