If I Could Play This Old Guitar

I can't play this old guitar but it is my heart's desire
The thought of playing for my Lord just sets my heart on fire,

If I could only play and sing my songs, that the lord has given me
Oh I can't even put in to words, just how happy I would be.

The Lord has blessed me with talent of writing great poems
But the talent of playing music is one I haven't been blessed knowing.

If I could learn to play a tune, oh this old guitar I'd strum
And what beautiful music I would play to Jesus while I hum.

Oh that old Rugged Cross and sweet Amazing Grace
And dream that I could see a smile upon his face.

Maybe someday this guitar I'll be able to play.
But for now I'll just sing and praise him as I go along the way.
