A hero

What is a hero? Some people might say:
one who saves lives or takes away pain,
one who gives of himself, places others above
his own earthly needs and does it for love.

What is a hero? Other people might say:
one who extends his hand, one that saves the day,
one whose heart goes out to reach those in need,
no matter what the cost to perform this selfless deed.

But what is a hero? To this I will say:
it is my Lord and Savior, to whom I pray.
Jesus is my hero for he has saved my soul
with his death on Calvary; this was his heavenly goal.

So with this thought, I can say: you're a hero to me,
for in you, my Savior Jesus do I see,
his love and his grace pour from you for mankind,
and this is what our Lord's word said would be a sign
of the ones who love him.
