The Kingdom is Coming

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Martin Luther's catechism says that "Thy Kingdom come" means both that God's Kingdom has come and is [in the process of] coming. I think that's a much better way of seeing it than those who mistakenly see the kingdom as something wholly in the future.

My wife sent me the words to "The Kingdom is Coming," a Gospel song that clearly displays this victorious view of Christ's kingdom in history. You can listen to the melody of the song by clicking here.

From all the dark places of earth’s heathen races,
O see how the thick shadows fly!
The voice of salvation awakes every nation,
Come over and help us, they cry.


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.

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.


With shouting and singing, and jubilant ringing,
Their arms of rebellion cast down;
At last every nation the Lord of salvation
Their King and Redeemer shall crown!
