Words & music by Steve Thorngate
After John 12:23-33 and Luke 18:31-33, 24:13-49

lyrics

He stood right there
And he told us he was dying—
Thirty years just standing by in
A living body.
But when he died,
Like a seed in fertile soil
He would grow
A living body.

He died up there.
Oh they did their best to shame him
And to make him suffer pain in
His living body.
We buried him,
And we doubted what he told us:
That he would rise,
A living body.

We knew him there.
After all the words were spoken,
Then he blessed the bread and broke it:
The living body.
Then he was gone,
And we ran to tell the others
That we had seen
His living body.

He’s standing here
In the flesh and blood we need.
Now he’s asking us to feed
His risen body.
He won’t stay long.
He told us he would go away,
And we’ll remain—
The living body.
