"Thy Kingdom come" - Matt. 6:10

1.  THY Kingdom come O God
     Thy rule O Christ, begin;
     Break with thine iron rod 

     The tyrannies of sin.

2.  Where is Thy reign of peace 

     And purity and love? 

     When shall all hatred cease, 

     As in the realms above?

3.  When comes the, promised time 

     That war shall be no more, 

     And last, oppression, prime 

     Shall flee Thy face before?

4.  We pray Thee, Lord arise, 

     And come in Thy great might; 

     Revive our longing eyes, 

     Which languish for Thy sight.

5.  Man scorn Thy sacred name, 

     And wolves devour Thy fold,

     By many deeds of shame 

     We learn that love grow cold.

6.  O‘er heathen lands afar 

     Thick darkness broodeth yet;

     Arise, O morning star, 

     Arise, and never set!  Amen
