1 Christ, you are the fullness of God, firstborn of everything.
For by you all things were made; you hold them up.
You are the head of the church, which is your body.
Firstborn from the dead, you in all things are supreme!
2 Since we have been raised with you, Lord, help keep our hearts and minds
pure and set on things that build your rule o'er all the earth.
All our life is now hidden with you in God.
When you come again, we will share your glory.
3 Help us live in peace as true members of your body.
Let your word dwell richly in us as we teach and sing.
Thanks and praise be to God through you, Lord Jesus.
In whate'er we do let your name receive the praise!
