Christus Paradox

You, Lord, are both Lamb and Shepherd.
You, Lord, are both prince and slave.
You, peacemaker and sword bringer
of the way you took and gave.
You are everlasting instant;
You, whom we both scorn and crave.
Clothed in light upon the mountain,
stripped of might upon the cross,
Shining in eternal glory, beggar’d by a soldier’s toss,
You, the everlasting instant;
You who are both gift and cost.
You, who walk each day beside us,
sit in power at God’s side.
You who preach a way that’s narrow,
have a love that reaches wide.
You the everlasting instant;
You, who are our pilgrim guide.
Worthy is our earthly Jesus! Worthy is our cosmic Christ!
Worthy your defeat and vict’ry.
Worthy still your peace and strife.
You the everlasting instant;
You, who are our death and life.
You, the everlasting instant;
You, who are our death and our life.
Alleluia, You, who are our death and our life.
~Sunday’s Chancel Choir Anthem
