Christ Pre-eminent in Creation


Tune: Lancashire

('The day of resurrection')

Colossians 1 v.15-18


Christ, pre-eminent, Lord be

And is the image, see

Of the invisible God

This earthly path He trod

He the first in rank over

Every creature He, sure

For by Him were all things made

Created, formed, outlaid


All that are in heaven, too

All that on earth we view

Visible and invisible

Earthly, celestial

Whether they thrones, dominions

Rulers, powers, each ones

All created by and through Him

Not by luck, fate or whim


And He is before all things

Let praises joyful ring

And by Him all things consist

A thing He has not missed

he the head of the body

The church, the truth this be

He the beginning, first raised

From dead, his power displayed

      Thanks N. Well, you can, though it may be an 'argument' in a technical or academic sense - meaning some reasoned discussion or debate.
      But - since when was I intelligent with only me 3 brain cells to use?! lol.

      I wonder how you can be in the image of someone invisible. Oh well my limited brain finds a lot of things hard to comprehend. Nicely written Orchi.

        Thanks SB. Yes, a bit of a mystery, now I come to think about it.
        Maybe meaning - He is the image of one who is invisible to human eyes. Or what God would be like, if He was visible to us - his character, attitudes, etc.
        Then again, it's said 'God is a Spirit', though Jesus is God made man, fully human and fully divine - that's my belief.
