Good Is the Flesh

Good is the flesh that the Word has become,
     good is the birthing, the milk in the breast,
     good is the feeding, caressing and rest,
     good is the body for knowing the world,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.

Good is the body for knowing the world,
    sensing the sunlight, the tug of the ground,
    feeling, perceiving, within and around,
    good is the body, from cradle to grave,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.

Good is the body, from cradle to grave,
    growing and aging, arousing, impaired,
    happy in clothing, or lovingly bared,
    good is the pleasure of God in our flesh,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.

Good is the pleasure of God in our flesh,
    longing in all, as in Jesus, to dwell,
    glad of embracing, and tasting, and smell,
    good is the body, for good and for God,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.
