Lord’s Day 23, 2019


I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

image

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
—Matthew 6:10

Thy Kingdom Come

image

Great King of kings, why dost Thou stay,
Why tariest Thou upon Thy way,
Why lingers the expected day?
Thy kingdom come!

Sin has prevailed on earth too long;
Ages of evil, pain, and wrong,
Have marr’d the meditated song;—
Thy kingdom come!

Life in its fulness is with Thee,
Life in its holy liberty;—
From death and chains this world set free;
Thy kingdom come!

Unloved, unworshipp’d, slighted now,
When shall each knee before Thee bow,
Of things above and things below?—
Thy kingdom come!

Earth still is waiting for the day
When old things shall have pass’d away,
And all be clad in new array,—
Thy kingdom come!

O’er us the tempest rages still,
The lightning ravages at will,
The war-trump echoes loud and shrill;—
Thy kingdom come!

O King of glory, King of peace,
Bid all these storms and tumults cease,
Bring in thy reign of righteousness;—
Thy kingdom come!

Peace, gentle peace, is on its way,
And holy love this earth to sway;
Hasten, O Lord, that glorious day—
Thy kingdom come!

Oh, bid Thy blessed gospel go
Forth to each child of sin and woe,
That all Thy wondrous grace may know;—
Thy kingdom come!

Oh, bid it speed its course abroad,
Tell of the mighty love of God,
Tell of the wrathful iron rod,—
Thy kingdom come!

—Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, Third Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon, try these.
