Prayer: The Hands and Feet of Christ

There was a believer in Joppa named Tabitha (in Greek, Dorcas).
She was always doing kind things for others and helping the poor.  Acts 9:36

Christ has no body now on earth but yours;
No hands but yours;
No feet but yours;
Yours are the eyes
Through which is to look out
Christ’s compassion to the world;
Yours are the feet
With which he is to go about
Doing good;
Yours are the hands
With which he is to bless now.

~ Teresa of Avila (16th century).  For a beautiful sung setting of this text, visit the Fast for Change website: http://www.fastforchange.ca/hymns_and_songs.aspx#Kindness
