The kingdom is coming, O tell ye the story,
God’s banner exalted shall be!
The earth shall be full of His knowledge and glory,
As waters that cover the sea!
From all the dark places
Of earth’s heathen races,
O see how the thick shadows fly!
The voice of salvation
Awakes ev’ry nation,
“Come over and help us,” they cry.
The sunlight is glancing
O’er armies advancing
To conquer the kingdoms of sin;
Our Lord shall possess them,
His presence shall bless them,
His beauty shall enter them in. [Refrain]
With shouting and singing,
And jubilant ringing,
Their arms of rebellion cast down,
At last ev’ry nation
The Lord of salvation,
Their King and Redeemer, shall crown! [Refrain]
Mary Bridges Canady Slade, 1876
Read Isaiah 52:6-12
The Kingdom is coming. Sometimes it is difficult at best to grasp that when we look at the world around us. But make no mistake, everything is perfectly on schedule. God has not ceded one bit of His authority or oversight. We cannot comprehend how different things will be when Jesus Christ is ruling but let us pray for that day to come. Be encouraged!
