Verse 1
D                          G
Sometimes its sink or swim
                         D
And I've been treading water

I should have expected the flood
    G                                Bm
But floating never has been easy for me
               G
You caught me carefree
        Bm                 A              Em  G  A
And You called me like you saw me, ah...a sinner.


Verse 2
           D
And I said five wits, looks and strength
                  G                           D
I don't think are much in the way of companions

And good deeds couldn't pay me account
    G
Not kinsmen or knowledge stand
             Bm         G
The trial of every man..oh no
      Bm            A
Don't call me every man...

Chorus
        Em      G  D  A          Em      G  D  A
Call me Christian,    ...call me Christian
        Em      G  D  A          G
Call me Christian,    ...call me Christian.


Intro 1X (2nd part of lead guitar)


Verse 3 
D
I've looked on the evergreen
                 G                            D
And I've seen it constantly grow and show us life
                          G
And I want to live eternally
                          Bm       G
I want to be an imitation of Christ
          Bm          A
I want to be a little Christ.

Chorus

Bridge
     D               G
As a boy I'd put my steps
                       D
In my brother's bigger tracks

To match his stride
              G
And just like that I'll follow Jesus
D           G
Jesus is my guide.

Chorus 2X

Chorus 2X (With background vocals only singing...
"I am in You, You are in me, hajeluiah.")
