booklady Have you ever heard the song with these words?

"Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours...
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now."

It's by John Michael Talbot and I've found where you can download it but I'm just too technologically ignorant to know how! The song, however, is beautiful!

God bless, booklady




Skylar Burris Thanks, Karen! I'm glad you are enjoying Ancient Paths.
