I say I am a Christian, Do you?

When I say; 'I am a Christian'

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living''

I'm whispering 'I was lost,

Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I don't speak of this with pride.

I'm confessing that I stumble

and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I'm not trying to be strong.

I'm professing that I'm weak and

need His strength to carry on.

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I'm not bragging of success.

I'm admitting I have failed and

need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I'm not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are far too visible but,

God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I still feel the sting of pain...

I have my share of heartaches,

so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian'

I'm not holier than thou,

I'm just a simple sinner

Who received God's good grace, somehow!
