Intro: D A D F D D A C D D C D C A D D C F D
He got lost from his unit in the j[C]ungle alone,
with the [G]enemy on the ad[D]vance;
As the bullets and tracers flew [C]over his head,
he knew [G]that he didn't have a [D]chance.
He fired his rifle and [C]tried to be brave,
though his [G]senses were frightened and [D]numb;
He lay on the ground with a [C]lump in his throat
'Cause he [G]knew that the end would soon [D]come.
But [G]back home a mother was [D]down on her knees
praying, "[G]Be with my son, keep him [D]safe, Father, please."
When it [G]all looked so hopeless, just a [D]one-sided fight,
his de[E]liverance flew into the [A]night.
And the [D]enemy [C]scatt[G]ered as the chopper touched [D]down
and lifted the soldier off the hard killing [A]ground;
He could feel the LORD's [C]pres[G]ence in the hot jungle [D]air,
[G]surrounded by [D]mercy,[A] protected by [D]prayer.
[D]She had to work late, she was [C]hurrying along,
[G]trying to get home before [D]dark;
Against her better judgement, she [C]turned from her way,
and took the [G]shortcut that ran through the [D]park.
With night falling quickly and [C]no one around,
from the [G]deep shadows there stepped a [D]man;
She noticed the cold, evil [C]look in his eyes,
then [G]she saw the knife in his [D]hand.
She [G]cried out, "LORD, Jesus, I'm [D]one of Your own,
send me [G]help, LORD, you know I can't [D]face this alone."
As the [G]powers of heaven fought the [D]forces of hell,
the [E]man tripped and stumbled and [A]fell.
She [D]walked through the [C]dark[G]ness without worry or [D]fear,
knowing nothing could harm her 'cause her angel was [A]near
No evil could [C]touch [G]her, no demon would [D]dare,
[G]surrounded by [D]mercy,[A] protected by [D]prayer.
[C]He who abides in the A[G]lmighty's shadow shall be [Bb]kept
'neath His sheltering [F]wing;
[C]Yea, though I walk through the [G]valley of the shadow,
[E]I will not fear any[A]thing.
[D]He was a good husband and the [C]father of two,
It [G]all began harmless e[D]nough.
He started out trying the [C]drugs just for fun,
[G]Then he was hooked on the [D]stuff.
He was out on the street just a t[C]hief and a bum,
He was [G]dirty and out of co[D]ntrol.
But his family wouldn?t give up. They [C]cried out to God,
and [G]prayed for his lost troubled [D]soul
Then one [G]day a street preacher [D]walked up to him.
He said ?[G]friend did you know Jesus [D]died for your sins??
I?ve been [G]sent to help you find [D]salvation?s door.
You [E]can?t live like this any-[A]more
And the heavens were [C]open[G]ed and conviction fell [D]down.
And he cried out for mercy as he knelt on the [A]ground
When he stood up, his [C]soul [G]was in the Good Shepherd?s [D]care,
[G]surrounded by [D]mercy,[A] protected by [Bm]prayer.[A] [G]
[G]Surrounded by [D]mercy,[A] protected by [D]prayer.
