When I Say, “I Am a Christian”

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I'm not shouting, “I am saved”;
I'm whispering, “I get lost,”
That's why I chose 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 the 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.
