Lion and the Lamb

Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:1-5

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Revelation 17:14

There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him. Revelation 22:3

Lion and the Lamb Lyrics

VERSE 1
He’s coming on the clouds
Kings and kingdoms will bow down
Every chain will break
As broken hearts declare His praise
For who can stop the Lord Almighty?

CHORUS
Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Oh, every knee will bow before Him

VERSE 2
So open up the gates
Make way before the King of kings, woah, woah
The God who comes to save
Is here to set the captives free
For who can stop the Lord Almighty?

CHORUS
And our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Oh, every knee will bow before Him

BRIDGE
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
For who can stop the Lord Almighty?
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
For who can stop the Lord Almighty?
Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
For who can stop the Lord Almighty?
Oh, who can stop the Lord, yeah?

CHORUS
Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Oh, every knee will bow before Him

OUTRO
Every knee will bow before the Lion

Jesus Christ as the Lion of Judah

In the scene in Revelation 5, though, “no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it” (verse 3). The apostle John weeps because no one worthy comes forward. He is soon comforted: “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals” (verse 5).

This figure, called “a Lamb as though it had been slain” (verse 6) is obviously Jesus Christ our Savior (see John 1:29), and He proved worthy by prevailing, enikeesen, a word that can also be translated as “overcome,” “triumphed,” or “conquered,” all of which imply victory through conflict or struggle. As Hebrews 2:10 puts it, “For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.” He proved Himself worthy to be our Redeemer, High Priest, and soon-coming King by living sinlessly against the pulls of human nature and by dying as a perfect sacrifice in our stead (see Revelation 5:9, 12). ~ Forerunner Commentary

Story behind the song

This is a track from Invisible, Leeland’s first full-length album in five years. Leeland Mooring told NewReleaseToday the story behind this song:

“We’ve had a lot of changes in our band. About two-and-a-half years ago I was at a writer’s retreat at a cabin in Nashville, and we had an amazing three days. The third day, I was hanging out with Brenton Brown, and he’s a good buddy of mine. Rewinding a bit, the chorus of this song first came about three years ago when we were leading worship at a church in California for three days. The people coming to church were very hungry for God and very expectant. Every night got more intense, and the expectations and hunger grew. It was amazing leading worship for them because none of them cared about us, they were just there for Jesus and pursuing Him. We sang like two full-length songs, and lots of spiritual songs, where we were singing words like ‘Holy’ and ‘Worthy’ over and over for an hour.

The Bible talks about spiritual songs, which come out of your heart and Spirit. They aren’t necessarily a written song, but come out of your heart. That’s what we were doing, and everyone was singing their own songs to God. We were just weeping, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. My brother came over to me and asked me to play at the piano while he went down to pray for people. While I was there, God dropped the whole chorus of this song on me right there. I recorded the chorus on my phone.

For a year and a half, I played it for artists and nobody really connected with it. I played it for Brenton, and he just latched on to it. It spoke to him a lot, and he started working on verses with me. Then I met up with Brian Johnson, and we talked about writing songs together, and I reached out to him as well. He loved it as well. Together, the three of us finished the song in about a month. We sang it at a youth camp, and all the kids just sang along, and we knew the song was done.”

In the Bible, God is pictured as both a Lion (symbolizing his authority and power) and a Lamb (symbolizing his gentleness). Leeland Moring said:

“My brother and I were talking about this song and God’s attributes, about the power and tenderness of God at the same time. You see it with John in Heaven in Revelation. On earth, he laid his head on Jesus’ chest, and in Heaven he sees Jesus in all of His glory. He falls down like a dead man. God is so mighty and powerful, and Jesus puts His hand on his shoulder and tells him to not be afraid. It’s an amazing picture of how we tremble at His power and might and glory, and at the same time He is tender like a Lamb. It is amazing that He is both to us, for us and with us. I’m excited to see how the song has connected with people. I really didn’t have much to do with the song, as the Lord just gave me the chorus.”

The song was originally included on Bethel Music’s Have It All worship album, which was released four months earlier. Leeland Moring said:

“We’ve loved being connected with Bethel Music, as after some changes our band it’s just me and Casey (Moore, guitar). We felt like nomads, wanted to put roots down and joined up with Bethel. The first time I sang and recorded this song was at Bethel Church. We thought we were just there to visit, and we did some songwriting, and on Saturday night Brian (Johnson) asked me to sing this song with him the next morning at the church service. It was awesome. We sang this song for the first time together.

We moved forward, and when they recorded the Have it All album, we came out again and sang the song for the recording in a set with Cory Asbury and Jonathan Helser. The presence of God was really strong. It didn’t feel like a recording, it was just an awesome Sunday morning worship time. We changed it up a little for the studio recording for the album Invisible. What’s different is that it’s more of a synth-based musical style and fits really well on the album.” ~ https://www.songfacts.com/
