#824, #833, #1229


As members of the Body

Christ we would manifest,

Each learning how to function

His fulness to express;

We would not be spectators

But each as members move,

None bringing death or damage

But each our profit prove.


As in a team we'd never

Act independently,

But in coordination,

Each would dependent be;

Not acting by our choosing

But following the flow,

Distraction never bringing,

The Spirit's way we'd know.


On Christ we here would focus,

No other center make;

With Christ in sweet communion

His riches to partake.

He is our Head and content,

His Body we express;

Whate'er we do while meeting

Himself must manifest.


Built up in love together,

Not one would criticize;

To perfect one another,

We all would exercise.

Each one from self delivered,

The natural life forsakes;

In grace each trained in spirit

The Body-life partakes.
