The Body of God 

the body of God.mp3

God breaking through to our lives / But this is no great surprise
Babies and barns, green fields and farms / This is the body of G

A star in the dark sky we share / Straw underfoot as we look up and stare
Each part of creation a perfect formation that lives as the body of G

Where else would G be but right here?
Inwithandthrough all we sense and we feel
G in the manger, G in the cows, G in the innkeeper's mother's eyebrows


Surer was a marvelous night / The story of birth and new life
And the dreams and the fears of the new parents' prayers / Were felt in the body of G

Just one more beautiful way / God's body blooms its array
Our Christmas story, one image of glory / As we move in the body of G

Where else would G be but right here?
Transcendent and cosmic and at home in our tears
G in the common, G in the strange, G in Jesus very first diaper change


These are unsettling times / And as I put my son down for the night
I can't help but think how much kinder we'd be
If we knew all of life, the world's every plight
To be part of the body of God

Where else would God be but right here?
Under our noses and in the midst of our fears
God in our stories, God in the world, God in the pain and the Good News we've heard


G in the manger, G in the cows,
G in the common, G in the strange,
God in our stories, God in the world, God in the pain and the Good News we've heard
