For Christmas.

lyrics

God is a body made of flesh and bone,
Born to a woman with an earthly home.
God has a family, with neighbors they know.
God is a body, not spirit alone.

God is a peasant from a humble town.
God didn't show up with a royal crown.
Made a life with the outcast, the sick and alone.
God is a body made of flesh and bone.

God gets hungry, cold, weary and sore.
God knows rejection, and what it means to be poor.
God wanders homeless, with no place to go.
God is a body made of flesh and bone.

God loves our bodies, and everything that we are.
Loves as one who's been there, not watching from afar.
Loves us in our failure, when we're brought down low.
God is a body, not spirit alone.

God is a body in the world today.
Jesus promised to be with us, walking in the way.
In our worship and our mission, our savior is known.
God is a body made of flesh and bone.
God is a body, not spirit alone.
