This track is included in our “Still, You Satisfy” CD Album.
Young eyes are filled with wonder, young hearts are soon amazed
When first they hear the stories from the Bible days,
Warriors who conquer giants, prophets who part the sea,
Brave men who walk unharmed in fire’s blazing heat.
Each heart would have a hero, each eye with wonder gaze
On champions we have lifted up on hidden stage,
Courage to imitate, devotion to admire,
Inward strength to cherish, higher virtue to aspire.
Yet, if the day still tarries, be sure ’twill soon arrive
When heroes clothed in flesh will dim esteeming eyes.
Small cracks in vases golden, speckles on shiny glass,
So hidden imperfection will appear at last.
And one by one each pillar in human halls of fame
Will tarnish, tip or tumble ’til just One remains.
‘Tis Jesus, our Example – perfect, without sin.
All heroes find their purpose only as they point to Him.
Jesus, truest Hero, be the Hero of my heart!
