"I Want to be a Lion"

“I Want To Be A Lion”

I want to be a lion… Brave and bold
I want to feel the warmth of fur when the air is cold
I want to be a lion… I want my heart to soar
I want to see my enemies tremble when they hear my roar

But so many times… My heart trembles like a lamb
And I realize… just how weak I am
I long to follow you Lord… close by your side
And in your arms I need to hide

I look into your eyes… and I see my desire
Through battle and sacrifice… Your hand never tires
Lord, give me strength and the humble heart to see you as the great I am
Open my eyes… help me be like a lion and a lamb
