It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girls' teasing laughter is carying 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 judgemental glances tells him that his chances
Are better out on the road

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

Jesus paid much to high a price for us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ

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

If we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His word teaching

And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way

Jesus is the way
