AvalonTestify to Love
 

"A Maze of Grace"
Testify to Love
(Paul Field, Henk Pool, Ralph Van Manen, & Robert Riekerk)

NOTE: This is the album, not radio version of this song.
This song is very easy to play, and one of the best. I have included the
*full* lyrics - the female background parts as well; they are in parentheses.
The "D* " is a regular D  chord that you basically strum *down-up* before going
on, but it's optional (you don't have to play it if you don't want to - it
just makes it a little more "real" sounding).

Here is how you play each chord:
  G        EM       D        C        AM       E
EADGBE   EADGBE   EADGBE   EADGBE   EADGBE   EADGBE
320003   022000   000232   032010   002210   022100
