The Body Of Christ
By June Stein
One of the sweetest blessings I know
Is to be ‘one’ in the body of Christ,
That body is marvelous; put together
With parts of costliest price.
For the price was His blood shed at Calvary
Given in love for His own,
He willing came to suffer and die
Leaving His heavenly throne.
By example, He taught us to love and forgive,
To joy in the body we share,
He helps us each to fulfill the purpose
We were born for, when He put us there.
We can savor the wisdom in all of the gifts
He bestowed on this body divine,
Fed by His Holy Word
Thirst quenched by water, sublime.
He knew we would need the strength of each other
To withstand the trials of the world,
And so we go forward, together
With His banner of love unfurled!
