C      Dm C  Dm-G                   C-Am
Blest be the Lord; blest be the Lord,
                     Dm - G                     C-F-C
The God of Mercy, the God who saves.
C Dm   C  Dm-G                C   Am
I shall not fear, the dark of night,
             Dm   G                   C-F-C7
Nor the arrow that flies by day.

F            G                             Em                Am-Dm
He will release me from the nets of sinful men.
              G                                C                    C7
He will protect me from their wicked hands.
F                   G                     Em                 Am-Dm
Beneath the shadow of His wings I will rejoice.
                 G                        C-F-C
To find a dwelling place secure. (Refrain)

F         G                               Em                Am-Dm
I need not shrink before the terrors of the night,
                G                                      C    C7
Nor stand alone before the light of day.
F                      G                      Em                      Am-Dm
No harm shall come to me, no arrow strike me down,
             G                 C-F-C
No evil settle in my soul.

F             G                                    Em                Am-Dm
Although a thousand strong have fallen at my side,
            G                                       C       C7
I'll not be shaken with the Lord at hand.
F                  G                      Em             Am-Dm
His faithful love is all the armour that I need
                    G                      C-F-C
To wage the battle with the foe.
