Creator God, Praise, Saviour, Sustainer God, The Gospel, The Lordship of Christ, The Reign of Christ, The Sacrifice of Christ



Verse 1
The image of God in Christ is seen
Creator of earth and living things
High above every other power
Sustainer of every place and hour

Through the sacrifice of Christ the Son
We are reconciled to God above

Jesus, fullness of God
He is sovereign over creation
The ruler of every nation
And seated high
Come, church
Sing of his goodness and mercy
Bow to the one who is worthy
Let us adore him, the Lord of life

Verse 2
Peace unto us through blood poured out
Saviour of all, for us came down
The gospel of hope, that we have heard
Now is proclaimed in all the earth

  Sample Introduction

Let us tune our voices to sing the Christ Hymn of Colossians:

“Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.  And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.  For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.”
