“THE BODY OF OUR LORD”
Tune: Now Thank We All our God
Text: Chad Bird, 2016

The Body of our Lord,
In his transfiguration,
Shone brightly as the sun,
In full illumination.
In nature one with God,
The Son partakes in love,
Of human flesh that we,
Partake of God above.

The prophets had foretold,
His coming Incarnation;
The Word would make our flesh,
His only habitation.
Now what their mouths foretold,
Elijah, Moses, see —
The Son of God made man,
That we God’s sons might be.

God’s glory in a cloud,
Once filled the Tent of Meeting;
The God enshrined therein,
All Israel was entreating.
But now the Father’s cloud,
Has filled a human tent —
His own beloved Son,
The Glory whom he sent.

The Body of God’s Son,
Transfigured on the mountain,
Now clothes the child of God,
Adopted in the Fountain.
When earth’s dark grave we leave,
Transfigured we will be;
Christ’s glory we will share,
Through all eternity.
