1Your kingdom come! On bended knee
through passing years we pray:
all faithful people long to see
on earth that kingdom's day.

2The hours of waiting through the night
no less to God belong;
the stars declare the eternal right
and shame the creature's wrong.

3And there already in the skies
the dawn's first rays appear:
you prophets of our God, arise,
proclaim the day is near:

4The day in whose clear shining light
the Lord shall stand revealed,
and every wrong be turned to right,
and every hurt be healed,

5When justice joined with truth and peace
make straight the Saviour's road:
the day of perfect righteousness,
the promised day of God!
