“Au Claire de La Lune” is a French song that many young guitarists learn to play because of its simplicity. “Lord, I Want to Love You” is a new song that I wrote that is sung to the same tune.
Because the song uses only three basic guitar chords (G, D7, and A7) and has an easy to learn melody, it is a good song for any beginning guitarist to use to perfect his playing the chords and the melody notes in treble clef. (This PDF provides the melody notes, words, and guitar chords for Lord, I Want to Love You in the key of G.)
Lord, I Want to Love You
Lord, I want to love you, You a-lone are true.
How I long to please you and be true to You.
All things are become new; I would be like You.
I so want to serve You, teach me what to do.
Lord, I want to love You, give you what you’re due.
You a-lone are wor-thy, make me more like You.
Fill me now with vir-tue that I’d e’er be true.
You a-lone are love-ly, O to walk with You.
Lord, I want to love You, give first place to You.
You are ev-er with me, draw me close to You.
Teach me how to fear You that I’d walk with You;
Give You all the glo-ry that is due to You.
