To Be a Christian -
Jonathon Pierce

        G
To be a Christian 
             G/B      C
Is to bear another's load
    G/B    Am
To carry what they hold
                D               D7
When they can't walk another day
        G
To be a Christian 
    G/B    C
Is holding out a hand
   G/B    Am         G
To help another stand
          F                D                           
When everyone has turned away
        G        C
To be a Christian
     G                  G/B
They sat there all alone
      C              C-G/B-Am
Their mother almost gone
Am
Their hope was passing
D                 D7
Passing with the time
         Bm              C
Should I turn and walk away
              Am               Am/G
Or hold their hand and simply say
          Am
I may not know your name
     G/B
But I can find
      C                    D
In my heart to share your pain
          Am                     G/B
And in my prayers to speak your name
             C
You're not alone
D7      G                      G/B      C
To be a Christian is to bear another's load
    G/B   Am
To carry what they hold
                D             D7
When they can't walk another day
        G             G/B     C
To be a Christian is holding out a hand
    G/B   Am         G
To help another stand
          F                D
When everyone has turned away
        C        C-G/B-Am
To be a Christian 
   D            G
Is giving love away
         G                G/B
It isn't always understood
                 C                C-G/B-Am
That through our worst God is good
Am
But when we act with love
   D            D7
It says so much more
         Bm                  C
There is something said of grace
          Am            Am/G
When it's written on a face
         Am                       G/B
That can touch a heart it's never touched before
       C               D
For to truly be like Christ
           C
It's not a sacrifice
D       G
To be a Christian 
    G/B     C        
Is holding out a hand
   G/B    Am         G
To help another stand
          F                D
When everyone has turned away
        C       C-G/B-Am
To be a Christian 
   D             G
Is giving love away
D
Wishing doesn't make the heart stop from hurting
    G/B                     E7
And hoping doesn't stop someone from crying
    Am7              Am7/G
But mercy falls so free
   Am         G/B       C  D
To those who will believe
     Am           G/B     C  D
Just take another look at me
        G
To be a Christian 
             G/B      C
Is to bear another's load
    G/B    Am
To carry what they hold
                D               D7
When they can't walk another day
        G
To be a Christian 
     G/B    C
Is holding out a hand
   G/B    Am         G
To help another stand
          F                D                           
When everyone has turned away
        C        C-G/B-Am
To be a Christian
   D             G
Is giving love away

G   C   D   G
