Lion

My scales concealed what only 

Your eyes could see, and when 

you led me to the pool, I understood. 

It was Your roar that called to me, 

in my wandering, in my loneliness, 

when no amount of greed could satisfy, 

when no amount of selfishness could 

comfort. So rid me of the rough hide, 

the sin I have covered myself with, 

the darkness I embraced in weakness, 

the folly I sought when I was alone, 

and let me touch the water, 

bring me into Your holy city, 

guide me into Your kingdom, 

and call me back home.
