She's on her own, two girls at home
Thirteen years just up and walked away
And left her all alone
With bills to pay and mouths to feed
And every day she's taking care of everybody else's needs

But she's finding her strength in the One love that won't ever leave her
So she works and she prays and she loves and she stays 'cause they need her

These are the heroes, just ordinary people
Laying down their lives like angels in disguise
They're weak but always willing
They dare to do the hard things
And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes
You'll find the heroes
You'll find the heroes

He walks the halls, against the flow
He sees his high school as his mission field
He's broken 'cause he knows
The hopeless road that they are taking
The empty feelings they are chasing only lead to futures wasted
So he's willing to stand alone

He lives what he believes when they all say it's not worth believing
Every night on his knees, he prays God, won't You please help me reach them?

These are the heroes, just ordinary people
Laying down their lives like angels in disguise
They're weak but always willing
They dare to do the hard things
And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes
You'll find the heroes
You'll find the heroes

You may never know their names
But they're moving mountains just the same
Instead of searching for the spotlight
They'll follow Jesus into the darkest night

Heroes, these are the heroes (These are the heroes)

These are the heroes, just ordinary people
Laying down their lives (Laying down their lives)
Like angels in disguise (Like angels in disguise)
They're weak but always willing
They dare to do the hard things (Dare to do the hard things)
And in the dark and desperate places no one else goes
You'll find the heroes (In the board room with a Bible)
You'll find the heroes (In the classroom praying for revival)
You'll find the heroes (In third world countries, in downtown missions)
You'll find the heroes
