Christ is the human face of God -
First born of all God made;

This is the truth; all who are flawed

Proclaim it unafraid;
All things in Him, seen and unseen,
Were made; all that has ever been.

Christ is the Head, Christ is the first,

And Christ will come to be;
This truth will always be rehearsed

By those who’ve come to see

That Jesus, lived and died and raised
Is One with Christ; now God be praised.

And male and female, flawed and marred

Yet human and divine,

This was the truth Christ knew, whose hard

Road to the Cross will shine
Wherever humans pay the price

And follow in the steps of Christ.

Now bread is broken, wine is poured,

A broken world remade,

This truth is honoured by the word
Of Christ, just as he said,
“This is my body, this my blood,

Poured out and broken for your good’

For in God’s Kingdom what was formed,
Though marred, flawed and defiled

Will be by Christ the first, reformed,

Re-made and reconciled

And all that wars against the good

Be brought to peace by Christ’s own blood.
