Hymn “Thou art the First, Lord Jesus”

Two verses of a hymn to follow the article on Jesus and the “I am” statements in Revelation. Alpha and Omega, First and Last, Beginning and End.

Thou art the first, Lord Jesus,
And so Thou art the Last;
Thou fillest all the future,
The present, and the past;
The Alpha, the Beginning,
The Omega, the End;
Once dead, alive for ever,
To whom each knee shall bend.

Thou brightness of the glory
Which eye hath never seen!
Thou never hadst beginning,
Eternal Thou hast been;
Thou art the perfect Image
Of God invisible,
In light which none approacheth,
In love which none can tell.

G W Frazer, 1830-1896
