One True Christian



The only one true Christian died on Calvary's cross
Jesus said "follow me"
whether gain or loss

The only one true Christian chose the fine from cull
Jesus said "follow me"
whether wise or dull

The only one true Christian stood up to the bold
Jesus said "follow me"
whether young or old

The only one true Christian gave all that he had
Jesus said "follow me"
whether good or bad

The only one true Christian served the spirit core
Jesus said "follow me"
whether rich or poor

The only one true Christian healed the sickly frame
Jesus said "follow me"
whether well or lame

The only one true Christian stilled the tempest lake
Jesus said "follow me"
whether true or fake

The only one true Christian lived without one sin
Jesus said "follow me"
whether rout or win
