The Prophet
Michael Card

 Am                                    Em7
( / / / / )( / / / / )( / / / / )( / / / / )
   Am           G  D Esus E    Am         Em7 Am
|:( / / / / )(  /  /  /  /  )( / / / / )( / / / / ):|
           G/A                      Fmaj7/A          G/A Am
Reluctant ride in the middle of the belly of a whale
           G/A                       Fmaj7/A
A wheel on fire in the middle of the sky
Dm        G                    Am
Abandoned baby kicking on the side of the road
      Fmaj7             G                 VAMP(1x)
And a wife has died but you're denied the right to cry

Three men walk out proteccted from a furnace of flame
One man cries out from a miry well
See a man in the myrtles and women with the wind in their wings
Fmaj7             G                   Am  G/A  Am /C
Understand what these seared lips can tell

Dm       G              Am
I am the prophet and I smolder and burn
   Dm                 G         Em7                  Am  /G
I scream and cry and wonder why you never seemed to learn
Dm                G                  C 	           D2
To hear with your own ears with your own eyes to see
Fmaj7     G                 Am
I am the prophet, won't you listen to me?
Fmaj7     G                 Am (VAMP 1st time)
I am the prophet, won't you listen to me?

I hold out hope to everyone who hears and understands
The Word of God can echo in the voice of a man
He's the shadow of a great rock in a dry and weary land
With the names of the ones He loved carved into His hands


Fmaj7/A G/A                  Fmaj7/A   Am
           The sorrow in His anger, my eyes weep His tears
   Em7/A Fmaj7/A G/A Am
His life  alight  in me
G/A      Fmaj7/A                    Am
I am the sword that cuts His people apart
G/A         Fmaj7/A            Em7             E7
I speak the Word that comforts their faithless hearts

Fmaj7/A 	   G/A     VAMP(2x)
I am the prophet

(ad lib at end)
