Your Kingdom come, O God

Your kingdom come, O God!
your rule, O Christ, begin;
break with your iron rod
the tyrannies of sin.

2. Where is your reign of peace
and purity and love?
When shall all hatred cease
as in the realms above?

3. When comes the promised time,
the end of strife and war;
when lust, oppression, crime
and greed shall be no more?

4. O Lord our God, arise
and come in your great might!
revive our longing eyes
which languish for your sight!

5. As rebels scorn your name
and wolves devour your fold,
by many deeds of shame
we learn that love grows cold.

6. On nations near and far
thick darkness gathers yet:
arise, O Morning Star,
arise and never set!
