Heaven’s host of heroes

We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses! This song was written as a reminder of that fact.

We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses! This song was written as a reminder of that fact, as we go about our daily lives and fight against sin, there are those who are praying for us and cheering us on! This song was written by Linnea Tangen and sung here by Liz Bettridge and Aaron Fitch.

Long before God laid the depths of earth’s foundation,
You were in His thoughts as He planned all creation.
In His hand, your life He placed, lovingly His promise gave,
“You will share eternal life with me.”

Heaven’s host of heroes cheers you on.
Through the clouds they’re following along.
The longing in your heart, they clearly see.
And they’re watching, praying constantly.

Through the darkness, can you hear them clearly calling?
Do you feel that God is near and always watching?
Hear their voices, heaven’s throng, full of faith they cheer you on.
Lift your head, keep running towards the goal.

Heaven’s host of heroes cheers you on.
Through the clouds they’re following along.
The longing in your heart, they clearly see.
And they’re watching, praying constantly.

When you feel alone and enemies surround you,
Just look up, your friends are fighting right beside you.
Our eternal goal’s the same, victory and peace we’ll gain.
Heaven’s heroes cry, “Hold out, endure.”

Heaven’s host of heroes cheers you on.
Through the clouds they’re following along.
The longing in your heart, they clearly see.
And they’re watching, praying constantly.

Heaven’s host of heroes cheers you on.
Through the clouds they’re following along.
The longing in your heart, they clearly see.
And they’re watching, praying constantly.
