Oh, Abraham would raise his hands
And mourn this very day
For his children left the promise land
In search of their own way

They kick and scream like wayward sons
And always wanting to sleep
And dream away these evil days
In hopes that God can't see

There are chains upon your children, Lord
Chains upon your children
There are chains upon your children, Lord
Chains upon your children

Do you hear the lion roar?
Awake O Sleeper
Stand with me; we'll fight the war
Awake O Sleeper

Your suffering will come again
And never fall away
For we trade our many comforts
Like the one who bled for grace

There will come a day my God will come
And put me in my place
My God, I pray
You'll call my name
Instead of turn away

There are chains upon your children, Lord
Chains upon your children
There are chains upon your children, Lord
Chains upon your children

Do you hear the lion roar?
Awake O Sleeper
Stand with me; we'll fight the war
Awake O Sleeper

Let no man bring me harm
I bear the marks of Jesus
Let no man bring me harm
I bear the marks of the Lord

I said:

Let no man bring me harm
I bear the marks of Jesus
Let no man bring me harm
'Cause I bear the marks of God

Do you hear the lion roar?
(Do you hear the lion roar?)
Awake O Sleeper
Stand with me; we'll fight the war
Awake O Sleeper

I said:

Do you hear the lion roar?
(Do you hear the lion roar?)
Awake O Sleeper
Stand with me; we'll fight the war
Awake O Sleeper

(Let no man bring me harm
I bear the marks of Jesus
Let no man bring me harm
I bear the marks of the Lord)
