Casting Crowns – If We Are The Body

From the album Casting Crowns

Lyrics may not be reproduced without permission from the publisher.

Listened on the Positive & Encouraging K-LOVE.

It’s crowded in worship today

As 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 traveler is far away from home

He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row

The weight of their judgmental glances

Tells him that his chances are better out on the road


Jesus paid much too high a price

For us to pick and choose who should come

And we are the body of Christ


Jesus is the way
