Clay Crosse — Be The Word lyrics

We can talk 'til we're blue in the face
Words come easy, but to do what we say
Takes the courage of conviction
And a heart of true commitment
We can preach about lovin' each other
But to reach out to our sisters and brothers
Requires a revelation
Of the Father's incarnation
Chorus:
To be the word, love
Be the word, hope
Be the word, made manifest
Be the word, grace
Be the word, faith
Be the word, made flesh
Through the word, all the worlds took their form
Then He stepped out and left his glorious throne
To establish heaven's kingdom
Though the world would not receive Him
Still He called all the weary and lost
To follow, and to take up His cross
And to go before all nations
As God's living incarnation
Repeat chorus
Yes the word that dwelt among us
Full of grace and full of truth
Now has come to dwell within us
To be giving, serving, living proof
Repeat chorus
