Hi apazo,
What lyrics have you deciphered so far?
Do you have an Internet link to the song?

Hello Nancy,

There are no links to this song. If you do not know it, I could perhaps arrange a You Tube video upload.
They have wonderful compositions, arrangement, and presentations but speech clarity is questionable. In fact, there are some more of their beautiful songs whose lyrics I am keen on figuring out in toto.

Here's what I have so far managed to figure out by ear but am unable to decipher some of the words in Verse 2.

The Body of the Lord - Celebrant Singers

Be ye humble, be ye gentle
Be ye patient in all you ways
Show your love by helping one another
Strive to preserve the unity my spirit gives
In the body of The Lord, we all are brothers

Verse 1
There's one Body, there's one Spirit,
There's just one Thought in which we come
There's one God, one Faith, one Baptism, one Father over all
Each one has a specialty that's given by the Lord
So ye shall for unity (be) together in one accord

Refrain
Be ye humble, be ye gentle
Be ye patient in all you ways
Show your love by helping one another
Strive to preserve the unity my spirit gives
In the body of The Lord, we all are brothers

Verse 2
We're no longer to be children always ------------------
We must ------ to speak the truth in love and in that love we'll grow
For when each member -------- his mom and pushes from her knee
Christ's body is built up in love and reaches maturity.

Thanks in anticipation.

BRGDS,
Just had another listen and changed speciality to special gift
and thought maybe the line we were both having difficulty with is
- for when each member works his part and functions properly -
I'm still not sure about the word - strive - in the line before that one
it doesn't really sound right to my ear but it fit for the moment

PS I'm no genius. It's just one of my "special gifts" from God.
I love singing gospel songs and praises to our Lord. SIMH
