Unlikely Heroes

Words and Music by Dan Lee-Archer, Paul Stokes & David Wakerley

VERSE 1:
Moses, Joseph, Jacob, Jonathan
David, Esther, Mary, Gideon
Samuel, Daniel, Jonah and the Whale
These are just some of the heroes from the
Bibles pages
Who put their trust in God and down
through the ages
Generations have heard these heroes tales

CHORUS:
From these ordinary people came
extraordinary things
Everyday people like me
And if God don’t have no favourites then
you have to agree
There is an unlikely hero in me

VERSE 2:
Let’s start with Joshua the strong and
courageous
Spied out the land, did something
outrageous
Believed his God would help him take the
land
Let’s talk about Elijah a survivor
Won the showdown with fire
God’s power shown through this amazing
man

VERSE 3:
What about Esther there’s no bester
Had a fashion crew that dressed her
Put her life on the line for her people and
saved the day
Yeah their stories seemed to start the way
An ordinary life but they chose to obey
Unlikely heroes is what they all became

VERSE 4:
Let’s talk about Mary she was just a
teenager
Birthed God’s son in a manger
Jesus came down, gave us eternal life
And then there’s Ruth, Yeah I tell you the
truth
God wants to redeem us she is living proof
Looked after Naomi and Boaz made her his
wife

VERSE 5:
I said Tim-o-thy, Yeah you-know-me
Learnt a lot from Paul about min-is-try
Took the message of Christ to the corners
of the earth
These ordinary heroes show this one thing
is true
If he did it for them he can do it for you
Living lives of purpose full of eternal worth
