The Lion of Judah

Full Text

1 The Lion of Judah, the Lamb that was slain,
In power and glory has risen to reign;
He only is worthy, none else could prevail
To conquer the dragon and open the seal.

The Lion of Judah has broken every chain,
And gives us the vict’ry again and again.

2 An army of aliens all valiant in war
May press hard behind thee, the Jordan before;
Be not disbelieving, nor faint with dismay,
The Lion of Judah the scepter will sway. [Refrain]

3 Though armies may compass, though legions assail,
With Him for commander we can but prevail;
Our watchword is vict’ry, we fear not the throng,
With the Lion of Judah we’re ten thousand strong. [Refrain]

4 When ended the conflict, the faithful will come,
With laurels of vict’ry and gems in their crown;
And prostrate before Him with rapture proclaim,
The Lion of Judah forever shall reign. [Refrain]
