Lion Of Judah is the ninth track from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely that basic tracking took place in 2006 or early 2007, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota (although possibly at either 3121 at The Rio Las Vegas, NV, USA or Circle House Miami, FL, USA).

In Christian tradition, the Lion of Judah represents Jesus. Prince's use of the phrase refers to its use in Revelation 5:5, quoted here in the New World Translation, used by Jehovah's Witnesses (including Prince): "But one of the elders says to me: "Stop weeping. Look! The Lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered so as to open the scroll and its seven seals.""
