1. God’s kingdom is within the heart,
’Tis there He reigns as king;
He speaks to us and bids us learn
His blessèd songs to sing.

O the songs, the songs of the kingdom,
That help us bid evil depart;
The glad songs of God’s blessèd kingdom,
The kingdom of God in the heart.

2. God’s kingdom is within the heart,
Sweet melodies are there;
We hear His tender loving tones,
It sanctifies our care. [Refrain]

3. God’s kingdom is within the heart,
Dear Savior, reign in love,
Until to Heaven we are called
To sing the songs above. [Refrain]
