Christ Is Preeminent in the Church - (Series 3B)


Tune: University

('The church of God a kingdom is')

Colossians 2 v.1-3


May hearts be comforted, and they

Be encouraged each day

People knit together in love

By the Spirit, the dove


And attaining e'en unto all

The riches of the full

Assurance of understanding

Which the true gospel brings


So that people may have knowledge

And may see, envisage

The mystery of God, open

Secret unto all men* (*mankind)


Mystery of God, Father, Son

Christ is the Son, the One

Sent from above that people know

Salvation, in Him grow


In Him are hid all the treasures

Of wisdom, true pleasures

And all the treasures of knowledge

He the Way to God, [the] bridge

  • Comment from author about the poem: A hymn-poem in format. 'In Christ are found all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge'. I feel this can mean spiritually, and naturally for all matters of everyday life.

    This 'mystery' means 'open secret'. Maybe seeming contradictory. If a secret is open, is it a secret? But the gospel message was kept secret from past ages, not fully revealed until New Testament days, which we are in now.

    I almost inadvertently passed this one by, by virtue of its title .. I guess I would be inclined to agree with some of your authors comment .. Neville

      Thanks Neville. Ooh fancy me - part 3B! Well, I didn't think ya would want 12 verses all at once. lol.

    • crypticbard

      The similarity of titles leaves the tags to differentiate by the use of my tag of a brain, lol. I suppose preeminence is a preeminent thing, your eminence. And the mystery is in the revelation- it having to be revealed by faith from the self-revealing One. The category is quite mission minded.

        Thanks CB. What's clear about it is that you can call me Your Eminence always. lol.
        It just followed on in my Bible with the same title as yesterday. I would have been worn out posting 12 verses all in one day! (Part A with 7 verses yesterday; Part B with 5 verses today).
        99% of all wisdom is to be found in Fido! lol.

          Thanks C4C. Christ first in all wisdom and knowledge; Fido second; KP about 5 million down the list! lol.
