Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

A bright and glorious kingdom

Representative Text

1 There is a glorious kingdom,
A kingdom bright and fair,
And many little children
Wait on the good King there.

Yes, children, children
Are in that glorious kingdom,
That kingdom, that kingdom,
That kingdom bright and fair.

2 O, in that glorious kingdom
Is built a throne of gold;
Its ornaments are jewels,
With riches all untold.

A kingdom, kingdom,
A bright and glorious kingdom,
A kingdom, a kingdom,
A kingdom bright and fair.

3 O, in that glorious kingdom,
And on that golden throne,
There reigns the blessed Saviour,
Those children are his own.

Yes, children, children,
Are in that glorious kingdom;
That kingdom, that kingdom,
That kingdom bright and fair.

4 And in that glorious kingdom
Around the throne of gold,
Are throngs of children’s angels,
Their numbers are untold.

Yes, angels—angels
Are in that glorious kingdom;
That kingdom, that kingdom,
That kingdom bright and fair.
