1 "Thy kingdom come," on bended knee
The passing ages pray;
And faithful souls have yearned to see
On earth that Kingdom's day.
2 But the slow watches of the night
Not less to God belong;
And for the everlasting right
The silent stars are strong.
3 And lo! already on the hills
The flags of dawn appear;
Gird up your loins, ye prophet souls,
Proclaim the day is near:
4 The day in whose clear-shining light
All wrong shall stand revealed;
When justice shall be clothed with might,
And every hurt be healed.
5 When knowledge, hand in hand with peace,
Shall walk the earth abroad;
The day of perfect righteousness,
The promised day of God.
