42. The Lion of Judah

1 ‘Twas Jesus, my Saviour, who died on the tree,
To open a fountain for sinners like me;
His blood is that fountain which pardon bestows,
And cleanses the foulest wherever it flows.

Refrain:
For the lion of Judah shall break every chain,
And give us the vict’ry, again and again.

2 And when I was willing with all things to part,
He gave me His blessing, His love in my heart;
So now I am joined with the conquering band
Who are marching to glory at Jesus’ command. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ round me the storms of adversity roll,
And the waves of destruction encompass my soul;
In vain this frail vessel the tempest shall toss—
My hope is secure through the blood of the cross. [Refrain]

4 And when with the ransomed, by Jesus, my Head,
From fountain to fountain I then shall be led;
I’ll fall at His feet and His mercy adore,
And sing Hallelujah to God evermore. [Refrain]
