How Beautiful is the Body of Christ

How beautiful the hands that served

the wine and the bread

and the sons of the earth.

How beautiful the feet that walked

the long dusty roads

and the hills to the cross.

How beautiful

how beautiful

how beautiful is the body of Christ.

How beautiful the heart that bled

that took all my sin

and bore it instead.

How beautiful the tender eyes

that chose to forgive

and never despise.

How beautiful

how beautiful

how beautiful is the body of Christ.

And as He laid down His life

we offer this sacrifice

that we will live just as he died:

willing to pay the price

willing to pay the price.

How beautiful the radiant Bride

who waits for her Groom

with His light in her eyes.

How beautiful when humble hearts give

the fruit of pure lives

so that others may live.

How beautiful

how beautiful

how beautiful is the body of Christ.

How beautiful the feet that bring

the sound of good news

and the love of the King.

How beautiful the hands that serve

the wine and the bread

and the sons of the earth.

How beautiful

how beautiful

how beautiful is the body of Christ.
