The city cried out for a hero.
The streets were ravaged by addictions slaves.
Hearts broken, souls captive, hope exiled.
But there came a fire that set the horizon ablaze.
A child was born at night in the chosen city.
A hero to rise from a manger
Could this boy of mortal flesh and divine blood slay the beast?
Could the keys of freedomís liberty be obtained by these fragile hands?
He was given the name Hero, child of man and Destiny.
The dragon set his monsters out to find the child.
He was determined never to allow the boy live.
But the child grew and became master of life.
He grew in power, setting free the oppressed, and possessed.
His hands eradicated disease, fever, and death himself.
But soon the monsters found him.
In all their efforts they tried to crush him, yet they failed.
The light from the sunís deep core burned in his eyes,
The blood of eternityís life-spring flowed in his veins.
He soon understood that he was the answer to sinís enigma.
He could save only so many as a mortal man, so he surrendered.
For the sake of man, Hero lay across the executioners block.
The demon took the sacrifice, slashing at his body.
Death took the spear of destiny and thrust it into his side.
Blood flowed and the light of ages faded from Heroís eyes.
The earth moaned. From the land of mortals Hero fell.
Man was confused at the death of their Champion.
Heaven cried and the angels rioted in the heavenly kingdom.
Suddenly lightning slashed through the atmosphere of the underworld.
It pounded upon the door and unholy sanctuary of the Dragon.
The great beast, that ancient serpent, Lucifer awoke
A Challengerís Shout came from the battle field of Hell,
A great quake resonated shaking the dark kingdom.
It was Hero. He had crossed over to defeat the beast.
The great dragon met him on that field and there they did battle
For three days Hero fought the dragon, death, and corruption.
Yet with every passing moment, Destiny transformed Hero.
Hero defiled the unholy sanctuaries and ravaged the underworld.
The love for man that had shown so brightly was now a mask of wrath.
Hero battled the Dragon, putting seduction, lust, hate, and fear to the sword.
In three days the child who became a man, became a warrior,
Hero became triumphant over the great dragon, destroying all his works.
He made a great skeptical of Lucifer, and then released the captives. .
Baby became man, became sacrifice, became warrior, became triumphant,
Became savior, and has become King, Master of Creation.
Oh come all ye faithful and let us adore him, bow down before him, Christ our Lord!
