The song is played on a banjo with these chords. If you want it to sound more like a
hit more on the 4 high strings (EBGD) and try to stay away from the lows. To give it an
further banjo-y sound drop the high E to a D and play as if it is a banjo, with banjo 
Good luck and enjoy.

Am                F         C                G
I have called you children, I have called you son
Am               F          C          G
What is their to answer if I'm the only one
Am                F         C               G
Mourning comes in paradise, morning comes in light
Am            F    C              G
Still I must obey, still I must invite

there's a music video and on the banjo he plays it on capo 2- but are the strings on a banjo different tunings?

The banjo in this song is tuned to open G, as most plectrum banjos are. The video in which Sufjan plays with a capo on the second fret is merely a step down from the studio version. Chords are correct.
