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

About the artist behind If We Are The Body Chords:

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.
