The Beginning and the End – A Poem

I have seen the beginning
for I have known the Son
The all-creative King of kings
whose redemptive work is done

I’ve not yet seen the end
but I know the One who’s there
On His promise I will depend
assurance that I am His heir

The fullness of God does dwell
within Jesus, the Chosen One
Of grace His Word does tell
from beginning to end He’s won

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:15-20 (NIV).

  2. Loved this, Linda! “I have seen the beginning, because I have known the Son” and “I’ve not yet seen the end, but I know the One who’s there.” I just found such comfort and peace in this poem. Thank you and God bless you!
