The Lion Lays Down

words and music by Mitch McVicker

I can hear a growl. I wanna tuck my tail and head home. 
But I'm surrounded by these beasts inside my soul. 
They're all around me and there's a pounding in my chest. 
But blessed are the meek, so I gotta believe that I am not helpless. 

The lion lays down with the lamb. 
So I won't be afraid now when he shows his teeth again. 

Maybe I should fight. That could be my part. 
But every time I try it seems I'm swinging in the dark. 
But the last are first. The weak will be made strong. 
So now even when it hurts, I will not turn. I know it won't be long.
