English.png English text

Thy kingdom come! O Father, hear our prayer;
Shine through the clouds that darken everywhere;
Thou only light, Thou only life and joy,
Show us the hope that nothing can destroy.

Stumbling and blind, we strive to do Thy will,
Trusting the word Thou surely wilt fulfill,
That men are Thine, however far they roam,
That love shall triumph, and Thy kingdom come.

Come, through the faith whereby the Church must live;
Come, through the word of truth she has to give;
Come, through her teaching, and her healing, too;
Come, through the work united hearts can do.

Thy kingdom come, and come Thy glorious Son.
O may our task for Him be nobly done!
Faithful and true let all Thy servants be,
Till they shall bring all nations home to Thee.

Lyrics: Margaret R. Seebach (1875-1948).
