Scripture Verse

By Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him. Colossians 1:16

Lowell Mason (1792–1872)


Let all that breathe Je­ho­vah praise;
Almighty, all-cre­at­ing Lord!
Let earth and Heav’n His pow­er con­fess,
Brought out of no­thing by His word.

He spake the word, and it was done;
The uni­verse His word ob­eyed;
His Word is His eter­nal Son,
And Christ the whole cre­ation made.

Jesus, the Lord and God most high,
Maker of all man­kind and me!
Me Thou hast made to glo­ri­fy,
To know, and love, and live to Thee.

Wherefore to Thee my heart I give,
For Thou Thy­self dost give the pow­er;
And if for Thee on earth I live,
Thee I shall soon in Heav’n adore.
