The body of Christ

We become one in You

Brother and sister to all who believe


Yet like all siblings

Tensions arise between

The closest of knits


It seems the deepest hurt

Comes from within the body

A whole wounded in uncertainty


The grip loosens, leaving space

Distance looks greater between us

When we should draw to You as groom


Only You can restore

The error in human bonds

To heal Your body


Keep us close

Don’t let us fall apart

Like marriages not molded after You
