OH, LORD, THY KINGDOM COME!
(Sung to the tune of “I Will Sing of Jesus’ Love“ The Church Hymnal, No. 529)

I will sing (I will sing), “Thy Kingdom come!” Sing it loud (sing it loud) as struggles swirl; Gilead (Gilead), I’ll welcome you; Oh, Lord, Thy Kingdom come!

Chorus: Looking back (looking back) at Carmel, past; Basking now (basking now) in Bashan’s glow; I must strive (I must strive) with all my might! Every Kingdom trait to show.

Like a bridge (like a bridge), each plank must be Strong and sure (strong and sure), for I must see I’ll be safe (I’ll be safe) as safe can be, Heading straight to Kingdom-come!

Chorus: Looking back (looking back) at Carmel, past; Basking now (basking now) in Bashan’s glow; I must strive (I must strive) with all my might! Every Kingdom trait to show.

Help me, Lord (help me, Lord) Thy truths to grasp Keep my mind (keep my mind) a channel clear: Sealing time (sealing time) I must revere. Yes, Lord! Thy Kingdom come!

Chorus: Looking back (looking back) at Carmel, past; Basking now (basking now) in Bashan’s glow; I must strive (I must strive) with all my might! Every Kingdom trait to show.

I look for- (I look for-) ward to the scene, To the time (to the time) when Jesus’ feet Pave the way (pave the way) His saints to greet! Oh, Lord, Thy Kingdom come!

Chorus: Looking back (looking back) at Carmel, past; Basking now (basking now) in Bashan’s glow; I must strive (I must strive) with all my might! Every Kingdom trait to show.
