The Earth is the Lord's, the fulness thereof
And all they that dwell therein,
Man, beasts and all creatures
All is a revelation of Him.
Now Jesus created all things
At the right time and the precise hours;
Visible, invisible, whether thrones
Principalities, dominions or powers.
All things consist in Him
He is the Head of the Church;
Who is the beginning, firstborn from the dead
As to His preeminence we need not make search.

For I have received from the blessed Father
By whose Spirit I fain would but tell;
That it is the Lord God's good pleasure
'In Jesus should all fulness dwell'

Colossians 1:16-19
