Praise Christ our Body

Who holds us together
in cells and membrane,
tissue and blood,
tendons and tears.

Praise Christ Whose Body
each part of ourselves –
an ear, an eye, a knee,
a scalp, a head full of hair
with each curl counted.

Praise Christ Who gave
us His Body and
welcomes each one of us in –

The Body of Christ,
the Church –

to work, play,
and pray together,
to love and forgive,
to worship as One
Being, adoring the Lord.
