In human form

In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form
(Colossians 2:9; NIV).

1. Christ is light in human form:
The light that leads to life.

2. Christ is fire in flesh and blood,
Consuming greed and vice.

3. Christ is truth personified:
As honest as the day.

4. Christ is peace made manifest;
He is our peaceful way.

5. Christ is God incarnate here,
His Spirit, like a dove,

6. Descends from heaven, revealing that
The King of kings is love.
