  • We were made to be courageous
    We were made to lead the way
    We could be the generation
    That finally breaks the chains
    We were made to be courageous
    We were made to be courageous

    We were warriors on the front lines
    Standing, unafraid
    But now we're watchers on the sidelines
    While our families slip away

    Where are you, men of courage?
    You were made for so much more
    Let the pounding of our hearts cry
    We will serve the Lord

    We were made to be courageous
    And we're taking back the fight
    We were made to be courageous
    And it starts with us tonight

    The only way we'll ever stand
    Is on our knees with lifted hands
    Make us courageous
    Lord, make us courageous

    This is our resolution
    Our answer to the call
    We will love our wives and children
    We refuse to let them fall

    We will reignite the passion
    That we buried deep inside
    May the watchers become warriors
    Let the men of God arise

    We were made to be courageous
    And we're taking back the fight
    We were made to be courageous
    And it starts with us tonight

    The only way we'll ever stand
    Is on our knees with lifted hands
    Make us courageous
    Lord, make us courageous

    Seek justice
    Love mercy
    Walk humbly with your God

    In the war of the mind
    I will make my stand
    In the battle of the heart
    And the battle of the hand

    In the war of the mind
    I will make my stand
    In the battle of the heart
    And the battle of the hand

    We were made to be courageous
    And we're taking back the fight
    We were made to be courageous
    And it starts with us tonight

    The only way we'll ever stand
    Is on our knees with lifted hands
    Make us courageous
    Lord, make us courageous

    We were made to be courageous
    Lord, make us courageous Writer/s: JOHN MARK HALL, MATTHEW WEST
