Cosmic Christ Reconciling

The ancient world at times saw the universe as out of balance.  The second part of the hymn (1:19-20) in Colossians praises Christ for his role in reconciling, not just human beings, but all things to God.   
By God's good pleasure
Christ encompasses
the full measure of power,
reconciling creation with its source
and making peace by the blood of the cross.
