He is in the image of God,
The firstborn of all creation;
He is for real and not a fraud,
As the path to your salvation.
We have redemption through His blood,
The forgiveness of our sin;
When baptized in the crimson flood,
His Spirit is cleansing within.
For all things created by Him,
In both Heaven and on the earth;
Creatures on land and all that swim,
Being fruitful in giving birth.
All that is seen and is unseen,
Whether underneath or above;
All things that will be or has been,
Fulfilled with His goodness and love.
Through Him and for Him created,
By Him all things hold together;
All things that are associated,
Just as He controls the weather.
He is at the head of the church,
He is the beginning and end;
Our prayers through Him when we search,
He is also Brother and friend.
He is the first born from the dead,
As to come in having first place;
Through His body when we are fed,
Given salvation through His grace.
For God was pleased His fullness dwelt,
And through Him to reconcile;
Defeating Satan that was dealt,
From evil that does defile.
Once you were bitter to your mind,
Because of your evil actions;
Not being heavenly aligned,
Due to secular attractions.
Remain resolute in your faith,
Not to shift away from your hope;
The triune God will keep you safe,
Comforting you while you cope.
