JFH Song Lyrics

  Artist List   /   Kirk Franklin   /   Hero


03. Hero

by Kirk Franklin



The heavens were silent
The earth wept in pain
Nations were trembling and hope never came
A terror filled the air and it wouldn’t go away
We needed a hero to come and save the day
Famine and hunger, disease in the land
The hatred, the killing
Taking lives from your hand
Creation waits, through darkness we pray
Tell me where is the hero to come and save the day

Through the nails, through the thorns
From the hill to the grave
Was 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 saved the day

To 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 day

When the curtain had closed, and it felt like the end
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

You saved, You saved the day
