Lyrics
 
How beautiful the hands that servedThe wine and the bread and the sons of the earthHow beautiful the feet that walkedThe long dusty roads and the hill to the crossHow beautiful, how beautiful, how beautifulIs the body of Christ
How beautiful the heart that bledThat took all my sin and bore it insteadHow beautiful the tender eyesThat choose to forgive and never despiseHow beautiful, how beautiful, how beautifulIs the body of Christ
And as he lay down his lifeWe offer this sacrificeThat we will live just as he diedWilling to pay the priceWilling to pay the price
How beautiful the radiant brideWho waits for her groom with his light in her eyesHow beautiful when humble hearts giveThe fruit of pure lives so that others may liveHow beautiful, how beautiful, how beautifulIs the body of Christ
How beautiful the feet that bringThe sound of good news and the love of the KingHow beautiful the hands that serveThe wine and the bread and the sons of the EarthHow beautiful, how beautiful, how beautifulIs the body of Christ

A Mother's Prayer

"A Mother's Prayer" Lyrics
I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch (them)where (they) go
And help them to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead them to a place
Guide them with your grace
To a place where they'll be safe

I pray they finds your light
And holds it in their heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind them where you are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide them with your grace
Give her faith so they'll be safe

Lead them to a place
Guide them with your grace
To a place where they'll be safe

    This song has the right jubilant tempo for a wedding recessional.
