Lead Me Chords by Sanctus Real  

 
Wendell4 says, This is a great song for all the fathers out there. We as men are to be the 
leaders of our households. We need to lead our wives and children! We need to 
fight for them, love them, and be the spiritual leaders for them! But we are 
uncapable to lead them if we do not have God leading us! Our wives and children 
are calling! Lets not leave them thirsty for love! Lets lead!
 
Intro: C-Am

Verse: C-Am-C-Am-G

Chorus: C-G-F-Am-G-C-G-F-Am-G-C

Bridge: Dm-F-C-G-Dm-F-C-C-G



C-Am

C                                  Am
I look around and see my wonderful life

Almost perfect from the outside
C
In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
Am
Always smiling
               G
But on the inside, I can hear her saying...

C
Lead me with strong hands
G
Stand up when I can't
      F
Don't leave me hungry for love
        Am      G
Chasing dreams, what about us?

C
Show me you're willing to fight
     G
That I'm still the love of your life
  F
I know we call this our home
    Am      G         C
But I still feel alone

C                                         Am
I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes

They're just children from the outside
C
I'm working hard, I tell myself they'll be fine
Am
They're independent
                 G
But on the inside, I can hear them saying...

C
Lead me with strong hands
G
Stand up when I can't
      F
Don't leave me hungry for love
        Am          G
Chasing dreams, but what about us?


C
Show me you're willing to fight
G
That I'm still the love of your life
  F
I know we call this our home
    Am      G         C
But I still feel alone

   Dm                  F
So Father, give me the strength
      C              G
To be everything I'm called to be
    Dm                  F
Oh, Father, show me the way
   C
To lead them
          G
Won't You lead me?

C
To lead them with strong hands
G
To stand up when they can't
              F
Don't want to leave them hungry for love,
        Am          G
Chasing things that I could give up

     C
I'll show them I'm willing to fight
G
And give them the best of my life
   F
So we can call this our home
Am              G                    C
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

        Am              G                    C
Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone
