Heroes of a New Age

There are many heroes in the scriptures—even women heroes! The song, "Heroes of a New Age," talks about some of the heroines from the Bible and stresses the fact that young people can be—and often are—heroes today. They are heroes when they stand firm in their values and beliefs. This song was written for a ward Young Women in Excellence program.

Lyrics
Heroes of a New Age
It must have taken courage to do as Mary did.
She vowed to do her Father's will, no matter what the cost.
She bore and raised the Savior, did all her Father bid.
In the end, she watched Christ die upon the cross.
It must have been quite frightening for Ruth to leave her land,
Her God and her religion and her relatives and peers.
Yet, faithfully she stayed there right at Naomi's hand,
For her loyalty was greater than her fears.

They were heroes of their day standing strong with integrity,
Showing faith and courage when faced with the pain of adversity.
God needed women with strength and loyalty,
Courage and faith and integrity,
Who would stand for right
With mind and might.
They were heroes of their day.

Though Hannah loved her husband, she had an unmet need.
She wanted more than anything to simply bear a son.
She prayed with faith unceasing: If God would grant her plea,
She'd give up the child that God's work may be done.
To save her Jewish people, Queen Esther risked her life.
Her actions showed integrity, for though she felt quite scared,
She acted on her values, despite the threat and strife.
In the end, her Jewish people, they were spared.

They were heroes of their day standing strong with integrity,
Showing faith and courage when faced with the pain of adversity.
God needed women with strength and loyalty,
Courage and faith and integrity,
Who would stand for right
With mind and might.
They were heroes of their day.

The Lord needs righteous women in these, the latter days,
Who stand with true integrity in word and deed and thought,
Who live their values wisely with courage and with faith,
And who try to live the way that Jesus taught.
You, too, can be a hero in this, the modern age
If you hold firm to values like integrity and faith.
Your name will soon be written on history's open page,
And your deeds will be retold in future days.

You'll be heroes of a new age standing strong with integrity,
Showing faith and courage when faced with the pain of adversity.
The Lord needs heroes with strength and loyalty,
Courage and faith and integrity,
Who will stand for right
With mind and might.
He needs heroes of a new age.

We are heroes of a new age standing strong with integrity,
Showing faith and courage when faced with the pain of adversity.
The Lord needs heroes with strength and loyalty,
Courage and faith and integrity,
Who will stand for right
With mind and might.
He needs heroes of a new age.
We are heroes of our day!
