Mark Hall is awfully diplomatic in his new song Courageous, featured in the upcoming film of the same name.  Its unspoken battle cry is more like Man!  Up!! for goodness sakes!

Clearly why I'm not a successful lyricist :).  But if you read the lyrics below, you *might* just agree with me.

I'm a long-time fan of Casting Crowns; I've bought every one of their CDs since their debut and seen them in concert a few times.  Courageous is just one of the songs on Come to the Well, their upcoming album planned for an October release. 

Take a listen.  If you likey, you can download it for free!

 

Courageous lyrics

We were made to be courageous
We were made to lead the way
We could be the generation
That finally breaks the chain
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 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 we're lifting 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, we're lifting hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

Seek justice
Love mercy
Walk on
Be 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, we're lifting hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

We were made to be courageous
Lord, make us courageous
