Son of Man

Image of the invisible God;
The firstborn over all creation;
Before all things,
In whom all things hold together;
Head of the body, the church;
The beginning;
The firstborn from the dead;
Having the supremacy in everything;
In whom God was pleased
To have all his fullness dwell,
And through whom he reconciled
All things to himself,
Whether things on earth
Or things in heaven,
By making peace through his blood,
Shed on the cross;
God’s Son,
Through whom he spoke to us;
Heir of all things;
Through whom God made the universe;
The radiance of God’s glory;
The exact representation of God’s being;
Sustainer of all things
By his powerful word;
Whose light shines in our hearts
To give us the knowledge
Of the glory of God in Christ.
