Vs 1 Come and see a place you can go to

It’s a place that’s old and new

You might want to think twice

Yeah, it’s no paradise

But this community’s where God reigns

The kingdom’s in you, the kingdom’s in me

The kingdom’s among us, it’s not yet to be

Not in the sky above us, not even in the sea

It’s across the land, just look and see

Kingdom come


Vs 2 It’s a place for helpless children

Tax collectors, destitutes

For those who’re never named

But still are always blamed

The hungry, meek and those in mourning

The kingdom is open for everybody

There’s no black list or admission fee

So many were invited, but most of them had plans

‘Cause open table means holding hands

Kingdom come


Vs 3 It’s a place where you are injured

Stranded, lying by the way

The proud ignore your cries

But one who you despise

Becomes the one to come to your rescue

The kingdom is in your dependency

That, and not power, is the currency

Learn to love your enemies, it’s not easy to do

But it’s harder when they love you

Kingdom come


Vs 4 So sow trust just like some seed all ‘round

Get back much more from some ground

The more that you invest

Will make returns the best

When forced to carry one mile, go two

The kingdom is here, it’s not in a jar

Try weeding it out – you won’t get far

The birds do not go hungry; the flowers are well dressed

The kingdom is life, life at its best

Kingdom come
