Christ brings the kingdom where barrenness blooms

Christ brings the kingdom where barrenness blooms:
see how the image of God is restored,
yielding a harvest of talents and skills
when we acknowledge our maker as Lord.

2. Come to his kingdom of weakness made strong,
brokenness mended, the blind given sight;
welcome and dignity crown the despised,
darkness is banished by glorious light.

3. Come to his kingdom where righteousness reigns-
God has commanded: repent and believe!
Children of dust in his glory may share,
penitent rebels his favour receive.

4. Come to his kingdom of laughter and hope,
savour the freedom its fulness will bring:
no more oppression, injustice or fear-
come to the kingdom where Jesus is King!
