As members of the Body

As members of the Body
  Christ we would manifest,
Each learning how to function
  His fulness to express;
We would not be spectators
  But each as members move,
None bringing death or damage
  But each our profit prove.
As in a team we’d never
  Act independently,
But in coordination,
  Each would dependent be;
Not acting by our choosing
  But following the flow,
Distraction never bringing,
  The Spirit’s way we’d know.
On Christ we here would focus,
  No other center make;
With Christ in sweet communion
  His riches to partake.
He is our Head and content,
  His Body we express;
Whate’er we do while meeting
  Himself must manifest.
Built up in love together,
  Not one would criticize;
To perfect one another,
  We all would exercise.
Each one from self delivered,
  The natural life forsakes;
In grace each trained in spirit
  The Body-life partakes.

Lord, don’t let us be spectators. We are members of You learning how to function, expressing Your fullness, perfecting one another. Build us up together in love.

"Built up in love together, Not one would criticize." Lord build us in love! Save us from our natural criticizing life!

The lyrics is very down to earth and practical. But anyone knows the composer? It should be given always if possible, including translators of songs, for two simple reasons: One, to give the credit where credit is due. Two: to place the responsibility likewise.

With our focus on Christ and remembering His death, burial and resurrection we are blessed beyond measure. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for saving me and bringing me to this website, it is work by His Holy Spirit! Amen.
