Christ the Alpha and OmegaDon Fortner

(Tune: #118 — When I Survey— LM)


1.    I lift my eyes to heavÕn above,

And through creationÕs limits rove;

Through earth, and sky, and regions vast, —

Christ Jesus is the First and Last!


2.    His name with joy and faith I view,

HeÕs Alpha and Omega, too!

He drew creationÕs wondrous plan,

And finished what He first began.


3.    When oÕer His Word my eyes are cast,

I see Him there the First and Last;

And all the blessings there made known,

Their Alpha and Omega own.


4.    The work of grace within my soul,

Since God my Savior made me whole,

From first to last His glories show,

And lay free-will and reason low.


5.    Thus when the toils of life are past,

Christ still shall be the First and Last;

And when I bow before the King,

IÕll Alpha and Omega sing!
