The king­doms of earth
Pass away one by one,
But the king­dom of Hea­ven re­mains;
It is built on a rock,
And the Lord is its king,
And forev­er and ev­er He reigns.


It shall stand, it shall stand,
Forever and ev­er and ev­er;
It shall stand; it shall stand;
It shall stand; it shall stand;
Forever and ev­er,
Amen and Amen.

The tem­pest may rage
Aand the hur­ri­cane roar,
Yea, the wind and the tor­rents des­cend,
And the strong gates of hell
May as­sail it in vain,
For the kingd­om shall stand till the end.


The king­dom of God
Is now op­en to all,
Even the vil­est may now en­ter in;
There’s a wel­come for all
Who will turn to the Lord,
Full sal­va­tion and par­don for sin.
