St Theresa’s Prayer – By John Michael Talbot – Quiet Reflections

One of my favorite songs, composed and sung by John Michael Talbot. It is entitled “St Theresa’s Prayer.” (St Teresa of Avila’s Prayer)

St Teresa’s Prayer

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

Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
Carmelite Nun, Doctor of the Church,
monastic reformer, mystic, writer.
