The Holding Center

1
He bears the whole universe;
He can bear my little heart;
The image of the Invisible,
Revealing all God's heart.
All things cohere, subsist in Him,
The Holding Center, Keeper strong.
The universe His worth proclaims:
Christ as reality, its song.
2
Through His Word, all things have life;
Everything, of Him, to Him;
And in the heavens now, He stands
Lord of Lords, King of Kings.
In Him we live, in Him we move;
In Him we are, have life and breath.
In wisdom great He metes the earth,
Apportions each their hill and heath.
3
This One and I—unified,
Mingled and incorporate—
He bears me in His mighty hand—
On Him my hope is set.
The universe in which I live
Is sometimes turbulent with storm,
But all I wish to see therein—
His mighty, lovely, lordly form.
