THE ROAR OF THE LION

The lion, from Judah’s tribe, He came

To rescue man from sin,

But the master of sin, the sibilant,

Came planting sins poison within.

.

.

Cleansing the temple of merchants He roared!

And the fear of God came down!

Tornado-like power swept through the courts

All fled from God’s angry frown.

.

.

His robe seemed burnished with golden flame

And flaming darts seemed to fly

From His mouth as He drove the evil out!

“Do not return!  Do not even try!”

.

.

The roar was heard through the city that day,

A reverberation of sound,

The bleating of sheep, cattle stamping,

But the serpent was still around!

.

.

Anaconda, cobra, rattler, a snake!

Yes, he comes “as an angel of light.”

Can crush you, swallow, poison, and kill

Even while you are thinking delight!

.

.

But we need not fear the serpent’s sting,

His deception we clearly can know!

The final victory belongs to the “Lamb”

When the “Lions roar” drives sin below!
