God's Image

Christ Jesus takes the burning light
Of God, the holiest,
And makes it plain to human sight.
We look--and we are blessed.

He seems a simple, common man.
A carpenter. A Jew
With sturdy legs and working hands,
And yet he is God, too.

This simple man has made whole worlds
And yet will bless a child.
He planned how stars were all unfurled
But lives with us a while.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:15-16 HCSB)
