The body of Christ – song for communion

The body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12)

The body of Christ alive in this place,
We are Christ’s hands, his feet and his face.
Both women and men and the young and the old
Each one is a part that we need for the whole.

We drink from the cup, we eat of the bread.
From my hand to yours, each one will be fed.
The rich and the poor this great banquet shall share.
With Christ as our host we will rest in God’s care.

As we eat the meal, join voices in song,
our bodies are fed, our spirits grow strong.
In joy or in sorrow, united we’ll be:
One body, one Spirit, one great mystery.
