“The lion has roared, who will not fear?” 

Amos 3:8 

The lion roars, before he tears, 

The Lord in wrath and mercy great 

Threatens before he strikes; but spares 

A sinner prostrate at his feet: 

Then let us fall with conscious fear, 

And when we faint beneath our load, 

Our contrite hearts a voice shall hear, 

“The lion is the Lamb of God!”
