If We Are The Body

by Casting Crowns

(Capo 2)

G   G Gmaj7 G Gmaj7 (x4)    

{Gmaj7 are hammered on and off}

       Em7                Csus2
It's crowded in worship today

            A7Sus4   Asus4        
As she slips in           

           Csus2          Dsus4/F#
trying to fade into the faces

    Em7                       Csus2             
The girls teasing laughter is carrying 

                   A7Sus4 Asus4
Farther than they know

                  Csus2   Dsus4/F#
Farther than they know, Lord

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?
           Em7             Dsus4/F#        
Why is His love not showing them      
there is a way?

           Em7 {4 measures}
There is a way.

   Em7                      Csus2
A traveler is far away from home

         A7Sus4   Asus4               
He sheds his coat         

             Csus2          Dsus4/F#
And quietly sinks into the back row

     Em7                       Csus2               
The weight of their judgmental glances

                A7Sus4 Asus4                
Tells him that his chances     

                      Csus2  Dsus4/F#
are better out on the road


Dsus4/F#  Em7      A7Sus4      
Jesus   paid much too high    

a price For us to pick and 

choose who should come

               Em7  A7Sus4     
And we are the bo - - -dy of    


(Chorus) x2

             Em7 {3 measures}
Jesus is the way
