Job Title

We Are the Body of Christ

Written by Tiffany Borbon and Chris Lim


Verse 1:
We come to You laying our sin at Your feet
Begging for mercy and grace
Selfish ambition and vain conceit
Have clouded our eyes from Your ways

Chorus 1:
Let us love just as You have loved us
Let us live as the children of God
Let us worship You with one accord
For we are the body of Christ

Verse 2:

We come to You thankful for what You’ve done
For giving Your flesh and Your blood
By faith we receive it, You make us one
United in spirit and love

Sing Chorus 1

Chorus 2:

We rejoice and we suffer as one
Lives laid down for Your daughters and sons
In the hope of Your kingdom
We are the body of Christ

Chorus 1 and Chorus 2 can be sung together at the same time.
