When I Say … “I Am A Christian”

from Three Iron Nails

WHEN I SAY … “I AM A CHRISTIAN”

I’M NOT SHOUTING, “I AM SAVED”
I’M WHISPERING “I GET LOST!”
THAT IS WHY I CHOOSE THIS WAY.

WHEN I SAY… “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
I DON’T SPEAK OF THIS WITH PRIDE.
I’M CONFESSING THAT I STUMBLE
AND NEED SOMEONE 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 PRAY FOR STRENGTH TO CARRY ON.

WHEN I SAY… “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
I’M NOT BRAGGING OF SUCCESS.
I’M ADMITTING I HAVE FAILED AND
CANNOT EVER PAY MY DEBT.

WHEN I SAY… “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
I’M NOT CLAIMING TO BE PERFECT;
MY FLAWS ARE TOO VISIBLE
BUT GOD BELIEVES I’M WORTH IT.

WHEN I SAY… “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
I STILL FEEL THE STING OF PAIN,
I HAVE MY SHARE OF HEARTACHES
WHICH IS WHY I SEEK HIS NAME.

WHEN I SAY… “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
I DO NOT WISH TO JUDGE.
I HAVE NO AUTHORITY,
I ONLY KNOW I’M LOVED.
