Lionhearted and Lamblike

At once a Lion...
   with one swipe of a sharp claw
      the promise of Heaven's fury upon sin
          was wide open torn;
And a Lamb...
   with a mere lifting of one wooly chin
      Salvation's neck became vulnerable
         to the world's knife.
Strong and meek,
      tough and tender,
         fierce and humble,
            bold and brokenhearted,
               lionhearted and lamblike,
Jesus showed all how to be...
     men, that's you and me.*

Revelation 5:5-6
