Smalltown Poets Album: Listen Closely Track: Call Me Christian
Call Me Christian Lyrics
Sometimes it's sink or swim And I've been treading water I should have expected the flood But floating never has been easy for me You caught me carefree And You called me like You saw me: a sinner
And I said five wits, looks, and strength I don't think are much in the way of companions And good deeds couldn't pay my account Not kinsmen nor knowledge stand The trial of every man Don't call me every man
Call me Christian (I am in You, You are in me, I am in You) Call me Christian (I am in You, You are in me, I am in You) Call me Christian
I've looked on the evergreen And I've seen it constantly grow and show us life And I want to live eternally I want to be an imitation of Christ I want to be a little Christ
As a boy I'd put my steps In my brother's bigger tracks To match his stride And just like that I follow Jesus Jesus is my guide.
