To Be a Christian Lyrics
CHORUS: To be a Christian is to bear another's load To carry what they hold When they can't walk another day To be a Christian is holding out a hand To help another stand When everyone has turned away To be a Christian (is giving love away)
They sat there all alone Their mother almost gone Their hope was passing, passing with the time Should I turn and walk away Or hold their hand and simply say "I may not know your name, but I can find In my heart to share your pain And in my prayers to speak your name You're not alone..."
It isn't always understood That through our worst, God is good But when we act with love It says so much more There is something said of grace When it's written on a face That can touch a heart it's never touched before For to truly be like Christ It's not a sacrifice
(To be a Christian) He gave His life To help another stand When everyone has turned away To be a Christian is giving love away
Wishing doesn't make the heart stop from hurting And hoping doesn't stop someone from crying But mercy falls so free To those who will believe Just take another look at me
