Tomlin, Chris - The Roar Lyrics




I waited for the Lord
He turned and heard my cry
His mercy opened up my eyes
When I couldn’t see and my strength was failing me

I heard the roar of the lion of Judah
I heard the voice that calms the raging sea
He came to me, came to me
When I needed the Lord
I heard the roar of the lion of Judah

I waited for the Lord
He appeared in blinding light
He led me through the darkest night
When I couldn’t see and my strength was failing me

I heard the roar of the lion of Judah
I heard the voice that calms the raging sea
He came to me, came to me
When I needed the Lord,
I heard the roar of the lion of Judah

I lifted my hands
He lifted me out
All praise to the Savior, all worship to God
With all that I am
With all in my heart
All praise to the Savior, all worship to God

I heard the roar of the lion of Judah
I heard the voice that calms the raging sea
He came to me, came to me
When I needed the Lord,
I heard the roar of the lion of Judah

You came to me, came to me
When I needed You, Lord
I heard the roar of the lion of Judah
I heard the roar of the lion of Judah

    Because grace is the person Who was nailed to the cross for our redemption, grace imparts hope to those who are hopeless and help to those who are helpless. When you are worn out, torn out, torn down, crushed, depleted, and on the brink of giving up, grace is the hand that pulls you out of the miry pit if defeat. Grace is the supply that floods every crevice of need.
    - Joseph Prince ✝️❤️
    Psalm 107:13-14 ❤️

    LONG LIVE ASLAN! 🦁🕇

  21. Daniel McKinney

    The Roar of the Lion challenges all of us to confront and stand up to our enemies.

  22. Matteo Donati

    What a song, what a song!!!Praise be to God indeed, who despite our weaknesses and shortcomings, still loves us and seeks us out!I personally find this song very uplifting, and when it talks about the roar of the Lion of Judah, I picture Aslan from the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, by CS Lewis, where Aslan returns from the dead after his sacrifice, and lets out an almighty, earth shaking, ear piercing roar, which like thunder announces his arrival!The enemy is then defeated and crushed! Thank you Lord, that you go before us, even if we forget that, and that you are always behind us, and never leave us!Lord forgive us our trespasses and give us your peace, wisdom and strength to take on every day and challenge, and remind us you are always with us, especially when we stumble and stray from you.All praise be to the Lord God Almighty, creator of all things, thanks be to Jesus Christ our saviour, who took up our cross and delivered us from sin!I have no words to express my gratitude, all I can say is thank you Jesus, with a joyful heart!

    9. Mystery MonkFranciscanmonk LocIn 19th century Austria, a near-famous painter named Joseph Aigner attempted suicide on several occasions. During his first attempt to hang himself at the age of 18, Aigner was interrupted by a mysterious Capuchin monk. And again at age 22, he was prevented from hanging himself by the very same monk. Eight years later, he was sentenced to the gallows for his

    political activities. But again, his life was saved by the intervention of the same monk. At age 68, Joseph Aigner finally succeeded in suicide, using a pistol to shoot himself. Not surprisingly, his funeral ceremony was conducted by the very same Capuchin monk – a man whose name Aiger never even knew.8. Photographic CoincidenceBaby1A German mother who photographed her infant son in 1914 left the film to be developed at a store in Strasbourg. In those days some film plates were sold individually. World War I broke out and unable to return to Strasbourg, the woman gave up the picture for lost. Two years later she bought a film plate in Frankfurt, over 100 miles away, to take a picture of her newborn daughter. When developed the film turned out to be a double exposure, with the picture of her daughter superimposed on the earlier pict

    ure of her son. Through some incredible twist of fate, her original film, never developed, had been mislabeled as unused, and had eventually been resold to her.7. Book Find387Px-Girl From Petrovka Movie PosterIn 1973, actor Anthony Hopkins agreed to appear in “The Girl From Petrovka”, based on a novel by George Feifer. Unable to find a copy of the book anywhere in London, Hopkins was surprised to discover one lying on a bench in a train station. It turned out to be George Feifer’s own annotated (personal) copy, which Feifer had lent to a friend, and which had been stolen from his friend’s car.6. TwinsMm Ring.JpgThe twin brothers, Jim Lewis and Jim Springer, were separated at birth, adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys James. Both James grew up not knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married women named Linda. Both had sons, one of whom was named James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women – both named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy.5. Revenge

    Killing300053732 0B20Ed7E73In 1883, Henry Ziegland broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide. The girl’s enraged brother hunted down Ziegland and shot him. Believing he had killed Ziegland, the brother then took his own life. In fact, however, Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet had only grazed his face, lodging into a tree. It was a narrow escape. Years later, Ziegland decided to cut

    down the same tree, which still had the bullet in it. The huge tree seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland’s head, killing him.4. Golden ScarabPicture 2-8From The Structure and Dynamics of the Psyche: “A young woman I was treating had, at a critical moment, a dream in which she was given a golden scarab. While she was telling me this dream I sat with my back to the closed window. Suddenly I heard a noise behind me, like a gentle tapping. I turned round and saw a flying insect knocking against the window-pane from outside. I opened the window and caught the creature in the air as it flew in. It was the nearest analogy to the golden scarab that one finds in our latitudes, a scarabaeid beetle, the common rose-chafer (Cetonia aurata) which contrary to its usual habits had evidently felt an urge to get into a dark room at this particular moment. I must admit that nothing like it ever happened to me before or since, and that the dream of the patient has remained unique in my experience.” – Carl Jung3. Taxi90072604.JpgIn 1975, while riding a moped in Bermuda, a man was accidentally struck and killed by a taxi. One year later, this man’s bother was killed in the very same way. In fact, he was riding the very same mope

    d. And to stretch the odds even further, he was struck by the very same taxi driven by the same driver – and even carrying the very same passenger!2. Hotel DiscoverySavoy1In 1953, television reporter Irv Kupcinet was in London to cover the coronation of Ellizabeth II. In one of the drawers in his room at the Savoy he found found some items that, by their identification, belonged to a man named Harry Hannin. Coincidentally, Harry Hannin – a basketball star with the famed Harlem Globetrotters – was a good friend of Kupcinet’s. But the story has yet another twist. Just two days later, and before he could tell Hannin of his lucky discovery, Kupcinet received a letter from Hannin. In the letter, Hannin told Kucinet that while staying at the Hotel Meurice in Paris, he found in a drawer a tie – with Kupcinet’s name on it.1. Historical CoincidenceSmall Us DeclarationeThe lives of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, two of America’s founders. Jefferson crafted the Declaration of Independence, showing drafts of it to Adams, who (with Benjamin Franklin) helped to edit and hone it.The document was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

  28. Ayesha Karim

    I love the lyrics to so many Chris Tomlin songs! I love this song.

  29. Curtis Alexander

    Great song! I just noticed that the video editor put the wrong chord progressions in the corner of the video. This song is playing in the key of A major, but the chord names presented are for the key of G. No biggie, I'll just transpose everything back to Chris Tomlin's key for the purpose of playing it on piano. Other than that minor technical glitch, this is an awesome song! Well done!

    Christopher Choate

    He noted capo 2

    Curtis Alexander

    Just saw that now, thanks. That is a guitar-related notation... I missed it because I play piano and don't use capo.

    Psalm 40:1-5
    (1) I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
    (2) He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
    (3) And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
    (4) Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
    (5) Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
