Christ has no body now but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours.   Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do well. Yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, You are his eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now but yours.
