Hymn to Christ (We Praise You) - Andersen

 1 Christ the visible expression of our God, we praise you! Long before creation He existed and was Lord. We praise You. REF: And therefore he is rightly called, Lord of all. And therefore He is rightly called, Lord of all! 2 Through Him everything was made, he is the Father’s Word. We praise You! Power and dominion rest on Him, creation’s Lord. We praise You! 3 Deep in Him the principle from which all life began. We praise You! Center point of history true destiny of all. We praise You. 4 Making peace upon the Cross He suffered for all us. We praise You. Reconciling one to God and reconciling us. We praise You.
This hymn of praise to Christ was written by Australian Roman Catholic priest and liturgist Fr Frank Andersen MSC.

It was originally published in the Eagles Wings collection, and so is now included in Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC, which is still available.   Both of these publications include lead-sheet style sheet music.

The words are based on Colossians 1:15-20

The tune was written by Fr Andersen:  it has a 4/4 time signature, and in the key of C the first few notes are G GG FEF GAGE C.
