A poetical paraphrase of Colossians 1:15-21

Jesus Christ: God’s exact copy
Existed before for all eternity
It was through Him that God made everything
Of heaven and earth He is the supreme King

He made all things that we see with our eyes
And invisible things of every shape and size
Thrones, kingdoms, rulers and authorities
Were made through Him and for His glory

He existed before anything else
Holds the universe together by His awesome Self
Christ is also the Head of the church
Which should act as His body to everyone in all the earth

He is the beginning; the first to conquer death
In everything He is preeminent
All the fullness of God was pleased in Him to dwell
Through Him all things to God are reconciled

In heaven and earth all things make peace
By the blood of His cross — enmity will cease
