The Body Of Christ, the Church, a poem.
How I love your word, from the first time I had heard.
We see as in a glass dim, in my brothers and sisters, I see Him.
Through our good works you do shine, the salt of the earth, you do refine.
We are your Bride, the Holy Spirit in us, you did hide.
Some are drawn to us as a moth to a flame, in those you love, there is no blame.
Father, who are we that you love us so? Down to earth did your Holy Son go.
For us He gave all, to redeem us from the Fall.
Beloved, upon my word I have placed my seal, in My coming Glory, my Sons I will reveal.
Jesus with My Sons I will bring, My great Joy over them will cause Me to sing! *
*Zephaniah 3: 17 For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight
in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs” (NLT).
The Hebrew word for “singing” actually means “a ringing cry” with a sense of joy. What a great verse! God sings. Since He is perfect in every way, I will look forward to hearing the beauty of His voice. The Bible tells us that He gave all of His creatures the ability to sing. Job says the angels, who are also called “stars” in Job, can sing (By permission).
