Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done

We're waiting for the night to be over
The days drawing closer, just read the signs and
We're longing now to finally see
The One we've believed in for all this time
And our hope is sure
And our anchor holds fast
He will never disappoint us
He said He's coming back for us

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done

We're looking to the skies in faith
As we humbly pray, Your Word fulfill Lord
We're working so that You will find
That we've kept in mind Your perfect will
And our hope is sure
And our anchor holds fast
You will never disappoint us
You said You're coming back for us

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done

O come and receive us, Almighty Lord Jesus
Your Kingdom establish, our strong lasting fortress
Dear Savior now hear us
Pleading, Come, Lord Jesus

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done

Come, Lord Jesus
Hear us pray
The Spirit and the Bride say
Come, Lord Jesus
Let Thy Kingdom come
Let Thy Kingdom come

STORY BEHIND THIS SONG...

(Read Matthew 6:9-13; Hebrews 6:19; Rev. 22:17-20)
"He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming quickly.' Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."

A Song addressing the Return of Christ:

Some people shrink back at the thought of Christ's imminent return. If you talk to them about it, they seem to say, "I hope it won't happen too soon. I've got this responsibility to take care of and that goal to pursue... not to mention this pile of sin that I've never dealt with...."

That is so wrong. Jesus teaches us to fervently pray for and desire His return. The Apostle Peter admonishes us that "in holy conduct and godliness" we are to be "looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God." If the Thief in the night finds us doing what He commanded us to do, we'll have nothing to be ashamed of when He comes unexpectedly.

If Jesus were to whisper to you tonight, "Behold, I am coming quickly," how would you respond?

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
