Does anyone know the chords and/or tabs to "Give You A Song" by Phil Keaggy. I've looked and can't seem to find them anywhere and I can't figure them out. BTW I'm new so if I posted in the wrong place or anything please let me know thanks.

God wants to give you a song is the correct title isn't it... And I tried to find the lyrics to it but can not on the Internet and unfortunately I do not do requests unless I have the lyrics.... By the way the only version I can find is this one... Is it true to the original as I also only like to do originals and not live performances...

I can't find the lyrics anywhere either but they go:

God wants to give you a song
God wants to give you a song
He wants to give you a song because He loves you
Your choice of melody
Sing what you will and you'll be free
Maybe you will know that we are loved too
Think of all the joy you can bring
Praise Him for everything
Let everyone aspire to sing of what is good and true

God wants to give you a song
He wants to give you song
God wants to give you a song because He loves you.

And when you know that it's singing time
Don't worry about the Canaans on the rise (I think its "canaans")
Rejoice when those bells of freedom chime
Oh, just open up your heart again

Oh, God wants to give you a song
He wants to give you a song
God wants to give you a song because He loves you.

Sing about what makes you feel sad
Sing about what makes you feel glad
Paint the colors from blues to reds and bright yellows.
Sing about the hope that is there
Feel the change its everywhere
Such good news for those who despair and tell those (i believe he says "tell those")

Lord, give us health enough to make work a pleasure
Wealth enough to meet our needs
Strength enough to face our battles
Grace to confess our sins to Thee
Patience to finish our task at hand
Charity to see good in our neighbor
Love enough to understand
Faith and hope to banish fear of danger

And what's behind the notes you cannot hear
The heart, the soul, the message yet unclear
The Spirit bids us come and draw near
To open up our hearts again, oh

God wants to give you a song
He wants to give you a song
God wants to give you a song because He loves you

Lord, give us health enough to make work a pleasure
Wealth enough to meet our need
Strength enough to face our battles
Grace to confess our sins to Thee
Patience (God wants to give you song) to finish our task at hand
Charity to see good in our neighbor
Love enough to understand
Faith and hope to banish fear of danger.


It is an original song of his. Ive only seen it on his album "Live From Kegworth Studio" though the song was recorded in a different studio i believe. It sounds a little different on the album than live.

If I do it I have to doit based on the above you tube video as that is all I can find of the song... May be able to get to it tomorrow for you..ok...

that's great. it is the same just a few minor differences like an intro and what not that don't matter but if you can figure the main chords out I'd be ever grateful cause they're not anywhere else. thanks again
