If We Are the Body
by Casting Crowns



It's crowded in worship today
And she slips in
Trying to fade into the faces
The girls teasing
Laughter is carrying
Farther than they know,
Farther than they know

But if we are the body
Why aren't his arms reaching
Why aren't his hands healing
Why aren't his words teaching
And if we are the body
Why aren't his feet going
Why is his love not showing
Them there is a way,
There is a way

A travler is far away from home
He sheds his coat
And quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their
Judgemental glances
Tells him that his chances
Are better out on the road

CHORUS

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose
Who should come
And we are the body of Christ

CHORUS X2
