In 2003 Mark Hall wrote a moderately fast song called, If We Are The Body. I like it!

If We Are The Body

(Capo 2)

G   G Gmaj7 G Gmaj7 (x4)    {Gmaj7 are hammered on and off}

       Em7                Csus2
It's crowded in worship today
            A7Sus4   Asus4          Csus2          Dsus4/F#
As she slips in           trying to fade into the faces
    Em7                       Csus2             
The girls teasing laughter is carrying 
                   A7Sus4 Asus4
Farther than they know
                  Csus2   Dsus4/F#
Farther than they know, Lord


(Chorus)
       G
But if we are the body
               Dsus4/F#
Why aren't His arms     reaching?
                Em7
Why aren't His hands healing?
               Csus2  
Why aren't His words teaching?
       G
And if we are the body
               Dsus4/F#
Why aren't His feet       going?
            Em7             Dsus4/F#             Csus2
Why is His love not showing them       there is a way?


           Em7 {4 measures}
There is a way.



   Em7                      Csus2
A traveler is far away from home
         A7Sus4   Asus4               
He sheds his coat         
             Csus2          Dsus4/F#
And quietly sinks into the back row
     Em7                       Csus2               
The weight of their judgmental glances
                A7Sus4 Asus4                
Tells him that his chances     
                      Csus2  Dsus4/F#
are better out on the road


(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Dsus4/F#              Em7      A7Sus4    Csus2     
Jesus            paid much too high    a price
                                     Dsus4/F#
For us to pick and choose who should come
               Em7  A7Sus4       Csus2
And we are the bo - - -dy of     Christ


(Chorus) x2

             Em7 {3 measures}
Jesus is the way 
 


I like to play this song in the Key of A.
