No More Lions in Israel


There are no more lions in Israel
all of the young lions have fled
There are no more lions in Israel
all of the old lions are dead
There are no more lions in Israel
all of the lionesses have been taken
There are no more lions in Israel
none to roar to make the people awaken
Where are the lions who once roamed
across Judea's mountains and plains?
Filling the idol worshipers with dread
whom they were sent to kill and maim
Where did the lions of Israel go?
Explain it so the world can know
The lions were robbed of their cubs
and the ecological balance was snubbed
They were scattered to the four winds
hunted in concrete jungles built by men
Although they were taken to another clime
God said they will surely return in due time
There are plenty of lions near Israel
preserved as a sign that the prophecy's real
Roaming still in their natural habitat
to the Holy land their progeny will one day come back
But there are no more lions in Israel
there are no more voices that roar
All of the lions they have tried to kill
so that the people will awaken no more
