105. Thy kingdom come, O God

Four 6's

St. Cecilia:

Leighton G. Hayne, 1863

Lewis Hensley, 1867

Thy kingdom come, O God!

Thy rule, O Christ, begin!

Break with thine iron rod

The tyrannies of sin!

Where is thy reign of peace,

And purity, and love?

When shall all hatred cease,

As in the realms above?

When comes the promised time

That war shall be no more,

Oppression, lust, and crime

Shall flee thy face before?

We pray thee, Lord, arise,

And come in thy great might;

Revive our longing eyes,

Which languish for thy sight.

O'er heathen lands afar

Thick darkness broodeth yet:

Arise, O Morning Star,

Arise, and never set.
