A new hymn: Christ is Lord of all creation


A hymn by Kim Fabricius

(Tune: Rhuddlan)

Christ is Lord of all creation,
     rules the universe in peace;
brings to judgement every nation
     which would be the world’s police:
Lamb of God who lies with lions,
     slain, he conquers Babel’s beast.

Weapons used for mass destruction,
     tools deployed in torture cell – 
horror shows of sheer revulsion
     scripted, acted, shot in hell: 
Where is God? Not hid in heaven,
     here, in blood – Immanuel!

In this world of fear and violence, 
     in the teeth of hate and death;
courage, Christian, and defiance
     till your faithful final breath:
in our deeds and proclamation – 
     “God is love” our shibboleth.
