Until His Kingdom Come

Until his kingdom come,-
The kingdom of our Lord,-
Until the earth shall own his name,
In ev’ry land adored:

We’ll work, and watch, and wait,
At noonday, night, and morn,
And never lay our armor by
Till Christ obtain his crown.

Until his kingdom come,
And all the desert wild
Rejoice and blossom as the rose,
With sinners reconciled: [Refrain]

Until his kingdom come,
And earth’s remotest bound,
O’er all the wide expanse shall hear
And know the joyful sound: [Refrain]

Until his kingdom come,
The universal reign
Of righteousness and peace on earth
The nations shall proclaim: [Refrain]
