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 and 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.
