Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


Thy king­dom come! and shall not each one sing it,
On land and sea, where’er His ban­ner goes?
Thy king­dom come! shall we not strive to bring it,
The grace that saves the world from hu­man woes?


Thy king­dom come! the glo­ri­ous tri­umph hast­en,
When peo­ples all shall crown Him King of kings;
Saints shall re­joice, and an­gels stop to listen,
While earth His ev­er­last­ing glo­ry sings.

Thy king­dom come! O haste to tell the mes­sage,
The world is dy­ing for the Word of God;
Send out the light, that Christ may see the fruit­age,
The world re­deemed that His own feet have trod.


Thy king­dom come! He waits to bless the na­tions,
’Tis ours to bring them quick­ly to His feet;
Make this the time to tram­ple sin’s foun­da­tions,
And lead the err­ing to the mer­cy seat.
