1 O Lord of life, Thy Kingdom is at hand,
Blest reign of love and liberty and light;
Time long foretold by seers of every land;
The cherished dream of watchers through the night.
2 Lo! in our hearts shines forth the morning star,
Shedding its luster on our darkened way;
And we behold, as pilgrims from afar,
The holy dawning of Thy perfect day.
3 Now gleams at last upon our waiting eyes
The glory of the Kingdom that shall be;
When truth in conquering grandeur shall arise,
And man shall rule the world with equity.
4 Forward again we move at Thy command,
The flaming pillar leading on anew;
One in the faith of all Thy prophet band,
Onward we press to make the vision true.
