Great King of kings, why dost thou stay? - Thy Kingdom Come
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Thy Kingdom Come.

1. Great King of kings, why dost thou stay?
  Why tarriest thou upon thy way?
    Why lingers the expected day?
                Thy kingdom come!

2. Sin has prevailed on earth too long;
  ages of evil, pain, and wrong,
    have marred the meditated song.
                Thy kingdom come!

3. Life in its fulness is with thee,
  life in its holy liberty;
    from death and chains this world set free.
                Thy kingdom come!

4. Unloved, unworshipped, slighted now,
  when shall each knee before thee bow,
    of things above and things below?
                Thy kingdom come!

5. Earth still is waiting for the day
  when old things shall have passed away,
    and all be clad in new array.
                Thy kingdom come!

6. O'er us the tempest rages still,
  the lightning ravages at will,
    the war-trump echoes loud and shrill.
                Thy kingdom come!

7. O King of glory, King of peace,
  bid all these storms and tumults cease,
    bring in thy reign of righteousness.
                Thy kingdom come!

8. Peace, gentle peace, is on its way,
  and holy love this earth to sway:
    hasten, O Lord, that glorious day.
                Thy kingdom come!

9. Oh, bid thy blessed gospel go
  forth to each child of sin and woe,
    that all thy wondrous grace may know.
                Thy kingdom come!

10. Oh, bid it speed its course abroad,
  tell of the mighty love of God,
    point to the wrathful iron rod.
                Thy kingdom come!
