Christians by Maya Angelou

A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.


When I say... 'I am a Christian'
I'm not shouting I'm clean livin''
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!
