“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!”

Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)
