In My Ears The Lions Roar

In My Ears The Lions Roar

In my ears
The lions roar
Around us 
Every moment,
Every hour
Trying over us 
To exert
Their destroying power

One lion roars 
Then another
Loud, strong 
Around us pacing
Hot breath in our face
Watching, waiting

Until a gentle whisper
Taps upon your shoulder
Soft at first
Then growing bolder
Its blazing light
Reveals Christ's 
Full glory, Power, 
Controlling might

As soon as they sense
This Almighty Prince
That very second
One last defiant roar emitting
They cringe
They cower
In their lower station more befitting

So do not give in
To floods of tears
Those overwhelming fears
Over everything Christ wins
His armies He will send

To bring to you
A restful peace
As in His loving embrace
He will settle His sheep,
That Lions' Master,
In a restful, safer pasture!
