If One Member Suffers
(1 Cor 12, 26)

      His face or flail
      His head; beat
      His sides or lash
      His back; nail
      His hands and feet,
      The man knows rack.

      His skin and split
      His flesh; crush
      His bone and break
      His limb; slit
      The veins that gush,
      You torture him.

      Christ's body yet
      Must ache, till
      Not one of us
      Will fall--let
      One suffer ill,
      We suffer all.
