Lyrics

I’ve heard it said “You can’t change the world if you can’t change yourself.”
I am that lowly man.
Here in life’s field, I’ve had my hands on the plow…but I’ve let it go;
There is no sweat on my brow.

These soft, un-callused hands are plainly seen;
I’ve never worked that hard for this…
Never had to bleed for what
I believe in; ‘cause I’ve never made a stand for You
Yet, you’ve always seen me through. (Now I…)

Don’t want to be a draft dodger
Don’t want to be a defector no more
I’ll wave Your flag,
I’ll fight Your war.
And if I can, I’ll be a hero for You Lord
I’ll be a hero for You.

I’ve been a fool & a faithless, fair-weather friend whose turned back on You…
Enduring nothing again.

I’ve never been that hungry and I’ve never seen the edge;
Though I’ve been walking on it all along –
I’ve been hiding in the hedge that I
Took refuge in. But it’s time I take my place and do
What You would have me do. (And I…)

Don’t want to be a draft dodger
Don’t want to be a defector no more
I’ll wave Your flag,
I’ll fight Your war.
And if I can, I’ll be a hero for You Lord
I’ll be a hero for You.

It’s like I’m standing in the woods; just outside the camp.
I need to join the soldiers there
But I just don’t think I can...
Then You find me.
And You take to Your fire and You say
You’ll lead us through the fray. (No, I…)

Don’t want to be a draft dodger
Don’t want to be a defector no more
I’ll wave Your flag,
I’ll fight Your war.
And if I can, I’ll be a hero for You Lord
I’ll be a hero for You.
