Intro: Em7, Em/F# (repeat as needed)

      Em7                  C2
It's crowded in worship today
           Asus7   Asus         C2             D/F#          
As she slips in, trying to fade into the faces
      Em7                        C 2                        Asus7 Asus
The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
                  C2      D/F#          
Farther than they know

        G                               D/F#          
But if we are the body, why aren't His arms reaching
                 Em7                           C2
Why aren't His hands healing, why aren't His words teaching
       G                                 D/F#          
And if we are the body, why aren't His feet going
           Em7                D/F#                C2
Why is His love not showing them there is a way
            Em   (into Intro)
There is a way

    Em7                       C2
A traveler is far away from home
               Asus7    Asus    C2             D/F#          
He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row
      Em7                         C2                            Asus7
The weight of their judgemental glances tells him that his chances
    Asus               C2      D/F#          
Are better out on the road


D/F#          Em7 D/F#           C2
Jesus paid much too hit a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
          Em7 D/F#    C2
We are the body of Christ
(Do the 1st chorus after the bridge sort of muted, and build in the 2nd)
Chorus 2x

About the artist behind If We Are The Body:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
