Seventh Sunday after Epiphany

Sermon by Rev. Matthew J. van Maastricht
Scripture: John 7:37-52

Choir Anthem:
"How Beautiful"

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 hill 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

See from his head, his hands, his feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet or thorns compose so rich a crown?

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
