Based on a text by St. Teresa of Avila
Christ has no hands on earth but our hands,
to guide and point the way,
to hold a hand in need.
Christ has no hands on earth but our hands.
So Lord, let me be Your hands.
Christ has no feet on earth but our feet,
to walk a different path,
and follow where He leads.
Christ has no feet on earth but our feet.
So Lord, let me be Your feet.
My heart is filled with gladness
when I look around and see
the wonder of salvation
and how He uses me. Christ uses me.
Christ has no witness but through our lives,
to show the world His grace,
and share His bountiful love.
Christ has no witness but through our lives.
So Lord, use my life today.
