so hidden in Christ
that a man

should have to seek Him
When I

"I'm clean
livin'"
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I'm found and
forgiven."
When I say... "I

I don't speak of
this with pride.

I'm confessing

When I say... "I am a Chri
I'm not bragging of
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
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,
Pretty is as Pretty does...
but beautiful is just plain
beautiful!
