The Lion Comes (Dennis Jernigan)

The Lion comes but to steal and destroy,
But I have the heart of the shepherd boy,
The shepherd boy,
and in my sling is the Rock of the ages,
And in my mouth is the song of the King,
And m feet will run to the roar of the beast,
As I cry to the north, south, west and east,
Give up!

Run to the roar! Give up!
Run to the fight! Give up!
Shout the song of victory
Bless the God of might
Give up!
Oh! Oh! Give up!

North, give up!
South, give up!
West, give up!
East, give up!

You’ve gotta give up!
You’ve gotta give up!

I couldn’t find these lyrics, so I’m providing them, as a public service.
