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.

Refrain:
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]
