In the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.@Daniel 2:44

God of Heav’n, appear below,
And let Thy kingdom come;
All these worldly powers o’erthrow,
And scatter, and consume!
Let the last on earth take place,
Never, never to decline;
Founded in perpetual grace,
The monarchy divine.

Lord, as taught by Thee, we pray
That sin and death may end;
In the great millennial day
With all Thy saints descend;
Now displayed with glorious power
Let that final empire rise,
Stand, when time shall be no more,
Eternal in the skies.
