Ave Maria Meditations

How Beautiful (song lyrics)

How beautiful the hands that served
the Wine and the Bread
and the sons of the earth.
How beautiful the feet that walked
the long dusty roads
and the hills to the Cross.

How beautiful…
how beautiful…
How beautiful is the Body of Christ.

How beautiful the Heart that bled,
that took all my sin
and bore it instead.
How beautiful the tender eyes
that chose to forgive
and never despise.
How beautiful…
how beautiful…
How beautiful is the Body of Christ.

And as He laid down His life
we offer this sacrifice,
that we will live just as he died:
willing to pay the price
willing to pay the price.

How beautiful the radiant bride
who waits for her Groom
with His light in her eyes.
How beautiful when humble hearts give
the fruit of pure lives
so that others may live.

How beautiful…
how beautiful…
How beautiful is the Body of Christ.

How beautiful the feet that bring
the sound of good news
and the love of the King.
How beautiful the hands that serve
the Wine and the Bread
and the sons of the earth.

How beautiful…
how beautiful…
How beautiful is the Body of Christ.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
