Thy kingdom come, O God

VERSE 1

Thy kingdom come, O God!

Thy rule, O Christ begin!

Break with thine iron rod

the tyrannies of sin!

 

VERSE 2

Where is thy reign of peace,

and purity and love?

When shall all hatred cease,

as in the realms above?

 

VERSE 3

When comes the promised time

that war shall be no more,

oppression, lust, and crime

shall flee thy face before?

 

VERSE 4

We pray thee, Lord, arise,

and come in thy great might;

revive our longing eyes,

which languish for thy sight.

 

VERSE 5

Men scorn thy sacred Name,

and wolves devour thy fold;

by many deeds of shame we

learn that love grows cold.

 

VERSE 6

O’er heathen lands afar thick

darkness broodeth yet: arise, 

O Morning Star, arise, 

and never set!
