[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
G
For his age, he’s wise
C                     G
He’s got his mother’s eyes
G                       Em
There’s gladness in his heart
                    D
He’s young and he’s wild
G
My only prayer
C                C7
is if I can’t be there
G     D          G
Lord, protect my child

[Verse 2]
G
As his youth now unfolds
C                G   G
He is centuries old
Em                        D
see him at play makes me smile
G
No matter what happens to me
C                  C7
No matter what my destiny
G     D          G
Lord, protect my child

[Verse 3]
G
The whole world is asleep
C                      G     G
You can look at it and weep
G               Em             D
Few things you find are worthwhile
G
And though I don’t ask for much
C                     C7
No material things to touch
G     D          G
Lord, protect my child

[Verse 4]
G
He’s young and on fire
C                G
Full of hope and desire
G                     Em
In a world that’s been raped,
          D
raped and defiled
G
If I fall along the way
C                     C7
And can’t see another day
G     D          G
Lord, protect my child

[Instrumental]

[Verse 5]
G
There’ll be a time I hear tell
C                G
When all will be well
G             Em          D
When God and man will be reconciled
G
But until men lose their chains
C                 C7
And righteousness reigns
G     D          G
Lord, protect my child
