Ricardo Sanchez Sings 'You Surround Me'

In this exclusive video, singer-songwriter Ricardo Sanchez performs his inspiring new song of faith and hope, You Surround Me.

Read Ricardo's inspiring cover story from the November 2017 issue of Guideposts.

Hey Guideposts, this is Ricardo Sanchez. It's such an honor to be with you guys today. I wrote this song not too long ago; it's called You Surround Me. I'm a singer-songwriter and praise-and-worship leader here in San Antontio, Texas, and I was going through some stuff and I'd been speaking with some people who'd been going through some stuff.

And I thought to myself, 'You know, though my enemy surrounds me, my God surrounds my enemies.' So I had that hook and then we wrote this song with a buddy of mine in Dallas—his name is Josh Dufresne, and it's called You Surround Me. It goes like this:

(song lyrics) 
In the storm, in the fight, I won't fear
For I know you will always be by my side
Through the tears, showing yourself to be strong

In my weakness, I rest in your goodness
And Father, your Word says you'll fight for me.

Though my enemies are surrounding me, 
My God, you surround my enemies.
When I'm on my knees, Heaven runs to me.
Jesus, you remain my victory.
You surround me.

Kingdoms rise and they fall.
You remain constant through every season of life.
Lord, you're always showing yourself yourself to be strong.

In my weakness, I rest in your goodness
And Father, your Word says you'll fight for me.

Though my enemies are surrounding me, 
My God, you surround my enemies.
When I'm on my knees, Heaven runs to me.
Jesus, you remain my victory.
You surround me.
Yes, you do, o Lord.

Day or night, night or day,
You surround me anyway, Lord.

 

You Surround Me. Thanks.
