Verse 1:
Jesus, the perfect picture of the unseen God;
Maker of things we cannot comprehend.
Wisdom the earth displays Your strength and beauty;
Sov'reign, yes, every throne knows You are God.

Chorus:
Every inch of this universe belongs to You,
O Christ,
For through You and for You it was made.
Your creation endures by the order of Your hand,
So You must have in all things the first place.

Verse 2:
Victor, over sin and death You triumphed;
Firstborn, You've shown us life beyond the grave.
Bridegroom, we long for You in expectation;
Jesus, Your church rejoices to proclaim:

Chorus:
Every inch of this universe belongs to You,
O Christ,
For through You and for You it was made.
Your creation endures by the order of Your hand,
So You must have in all things the first place.
