The Lion of Judah

Full Text

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

For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again;
For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again

2 And when I was willing with all things to part,
He gave me my bounty, His love in my heart;
So now I am join'd 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 hopes rest secure on the blood of the Cross. [Refrain]

4 And when with the ransom'd of Jesus, my head,
From fountain to fountain I then shall be led,
I’ll fall at His feet and His mercy adore,
And sing of the blood of the Cross evermore. [Refrain]

5 Come, sinners, to Jesus! no longer delay;
A full free salvation He offers today;
Arouse your dark spirits, awake from your dream,
And Christ will support you in coming to Him. [Refrain]
