Lion of Judah, Roar!
Roar now into the winter of my bondage!
Roar Your Righteousness into the cold corners of my world,
where trees of Holy Fruit lie barren,
and seeds of Faith lie stark in frozen palsy,
waiting for Your Spring!

Lion of Judah, Roar!
Roar in the High Places
where the Thunder of Your Presence
shakes into Life the pallid valleys of this heart
and awakens my slumbering spirit
from Death’s white stillness!

Roar, Great Lion of Judah!
Roar Your Springtime into the temple of my trembling soul!
Take Majesty over all the territory of this wandering life!
Be King!

Come Spring!
Make Joy Unfold and Blossom in the icy caverns of my despair!
Take root! Reach far! And Break the frozen earth of my will!
Rain into the frigid lakes of apathy and doubt
that I may Teem with Your new Creation in my soul!

Oh, King of Judah, Roar!
Roar the brilliant Rays of your Sun into the blackness of this night!
Burst forth the Torrents of Your Power,
and Spring forth the Vibrance of Your Day!
Let me See Spring through Your Spirit!
Let me Be Spring in Your Spirit!

Roar, Great Lion of Judah, Roar!
And with Your Breath warm my winter heart!
Plant herein Your Easter Song, the Harmony of Life Reborn!
Breathe, and thaw these empty, hollow hands,
and Fill them with sweet Springtime’s Hallowed Sacrifice!

Roar, Great Lion of the Ages!
And with Your Breath create in me Eden’s Spring
where
You are King!
