All in All!

a teaching rhyme
by Jerry Collier

the Creator
Sustainer of all
eternity’s adorn
His power
cosmic and bold
from nothing—
existence is born

the Author
the Cause
the Source
the Universal Name
chronologies pace
all matter and space—

have a heavenly frame

the Ancient
the Recent
the Now
the emerging Future span
traversing time
through Him it all began

the Outset
the Pathway
the Goal
and all that lies between
material wrought
both knowing and thought
what is
and is unseen—

all that there is
or ever will be—
is the very core
the All in All
eternal enthrall
beyond Him
there is no more

the Lover
the Champion
the Friend
with hands reaching out
He bades
though earth may churn
and shadows turn
His unchanging love
never fades

He is the Way
the Truth
the Life
the Mover
the ebb and flow
the path that’s straight
the entry gate
God is
and wants

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:15-17

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  John 14:6 NIV
