celebrate the Sabbath...meditating on the beauty of the Body...

How Beautiful
~Twila Paris
How beautiful the hands that served
the wine and the bread and the sons of the earth.
How beautiful the feet that walked
the long dusty roads and the hills to the cross.
How beautiful...how beautiful...
how beautiful is the body of Christ.
How beautiful the heart that bled
that took all my sin and bore it instead.
How beautiful the tender eyes
that chose to forgive and never despise.
How beautiful...how beautiful...
how beautiful is the body of Christ.
And as He laid down His life
we offer this sacrifice that we will live just as he died:
willing to pay the price, willing to pay the price.
How beautiful the radiant Bride
who waits for her Groom with His light in her eyes.
How beautiful when humble hearts give
the fruit of pure lives so that others may live.
How beautiful...how beautiful
how beautiful is the body of Christ.
How beautiful the feet that bring
the sound of good news and the love of the King.
How beautiful the hands that serve
the wine and the bread and the sons of the earth.
How beautiful...how beautiful
how beautiful is the body of Christ.

  3. First of all, I'm trying to keep up with all your comments over on my blog. I've decided to stop and come over here. You're a hoot, woman! I used to collect hearts. I have a seashell mounted in a shadowbox that looks like a broken heart. I've had it since junior high school. I don't think I have anything from jr. high school save that shell. I also love quotes, and C. S. Lewis, and Jesus! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I'll be back!
