I Know I'm A Christian But I'm A Person Too
Did you know that I like cartoons
And I also bite my nails.
I try to get on with everyone
But somehow I just fail.
I like to laugh and muck around;
But from you, would I get
An icy stare or a serious frown?
Did you know that I scream at the kids
And sometimes I don’t cook.
Would you turn a blind eye,
Or make the pastor look.
I like to drink tea and have a chat
But would you say to someone else,
“What do you think of that!”
Did you know I like to paint,
Using a knife or a brush.
I like to scratch on the dump
Without everyone making a fuss.
I do like to say a prayer, as I know you do.
I know I’m a Christian but I’m a person too.
I know I get angry and sometimes I shout.
I try to keep order but I give the kids a clout.
I try to work for the Lord
Whichever church He’s in
But I feel my patience is wearing thin.
You may feel hurt but sometimes I feel
We all need a shake and bringing to heel.
I know we are all Christians
And want to praise the King
But we are all individual people
Sheltering under His wing.
Can’t we try
To accept each others’ faults
Without condemnation, tittle-tattle or bad reports.
Jesus has accepted that we are people too.
That’s why he called us separately
To be members of His crew.
