He Is My Lion
He Is My Lion
He is my lion; He is my King. He is the world and everything;
He can roar within my soul as He gives me voice to sing.
He has made me majestic in my old, crippled walk;
He is my power of thought that shapes my words when I talk.
He is the blood that flows freely through my veins;
He is my Savior when I speak so fondly of His name.
He is the loving heart who holds my troubles in His hand;
He is the glory and the word, as the Bible tells all man.
He is the creator of wolves howling in the night;
He is the wise owl that gives me vision and sight.
He is the watch dog that protects as I obey;
He is the cure that respects all others when I pray.
He brings April showers and light winds;
He forgives me of all my earthly sins.
He has given me my soul and the love of my wife;
He is everything to me, as he has given me my life.
