So many parts, so many pieces, so many differences and yet each one unified;
So many functions, so many colors, so many sizes and yet each one qualified;
So many places, so many sounds, so many ages and yet each one identified;
So many years, so many cities, so many nations and each one purified;
From all the Body parts comes one great whole, and God is satisfied.
From the faith of Abel, who in ancient past brought God his offering of worship;
From the walk of Enoch who in harmony and step by step did own God’s Lordship;
From the faith of Abraham who believed God’s word; and enjoyed God’s Friendship;
From the sound of Sarah’s laughter, waiting all those years, comes truth of Headship
From all these ancient ones of faith, and trust, and hope; we learn the truth of sonship.
From the sound of the Baby’s voice in Bethlehem-town’s far distant manger;
From the splash of baptism in Jordan’s water, there comes the Stranger;
From the healing words, the blessing hands, the wet feet walking over danger;
From sermons strong and clear, the deeds of kindness, the Father’s joy, men’s words of hateful anger;
From all these evidences comes knowledge clear, and challenging; He is my Savior.
All these and more, thus put together in one great, magnificent, God-breathed whole;
All put together tell us truth that in the past was darkness, mysterious, but to my soul
And that of all the Body parts: brings light, and understanding, truth does now unfold;
We are all one, Christ is the head, we are the members; the Body grows, strong and tall;
Its size increases with each passing day; perfection nears, the time is near, the Body soon is full.
