As a lion bellows among the rocks of the canyon, bold
May we humble ourselves as the lamb
Who bleats for the return to the Shepherd's fold.
May we find honey in the carcass
As we rest among the boulders of the lion's den
With God's guiding light on the ledges
Our steps are secure as angels descend.
May we rest on the soundness of the rock
And lay our head as Jacob did
For God surely answers prayers
If we trust and stand on what Jesus gives
May we find the deliverance as of Daniel
As God found innocence within
And angels sealed away the harm
There in the lion's den.
Though the canyons be deep
And the mountain boulders be high
Love abounds when Jesus is nigh
There honey in the rock does lie.
The strength of the lion begins to intercede
The humbleness of the lamb yields release
Then forgiveness to others is in the air
There the spirit of the Lord gives peace.
May we never use the freedom of God
The gifts He bestows within
To press another unto bondage
Where praises to God cease to win
Exaltation comes before a fall
As Saul came before Paul.
Through another's weakness
May we become strong as we kneel
As we are healed by Christ's stripes
May by our stripes another be healed.
Oh ye that wail and weep
That ye may enter into peaceful Zion
And find rest among the boulders
Pillowing your head on courage as of the lion
And the gentleness of the Lamb
Pillow your head on Jesus divine.
