Thy Kingdom Come

We have learned it, we have sung it,
We have prayed it o’er and o’er,
We believe it, nations need it,
Let us ask it more and more.
           May thy Kingdom come!

A new tomorrow without sorrow,
Christ shall rule in righteousness.
Wars all ceasing, peace increasing,
All his name shall then confess.
           May thy kingdom come!

Need we wonder? Need we ponder?
"Faith can trust him, come what may."
Jesus taught it, all have sought it,
Yes, that bright Millennial day.
           May thy Kingdom come!

Keep on hoping, keep on praying
For that Kingdom promised long.
Age of gladness, no more sadness,
Right shall rule instead of wrong.
           When thy Kingdom come!
