1 There’s a glorious kingdom waiting
In the land beyond the sky,
Where the saints have all been gathering year by year.
And the days are swiftly passing
That will bring the kingdom nigh,
For the coming of the kingdom draweth near!

Refrain:
Oh, the coming of the kingdom draweth near!
Oh, the coming of the kingdom draweth near;
Be thou ready, O my soul, for the trumpet soon may roll,
And the King in His glory shall appear!

2 ’Tis the hope of yonder kingdom,
And the glory there prepared,
And the looking for the Savior to appear;
That delivers us from bondage
To the world that once ensnared,
For the coming of the kingdom draweth near! [Refrain]

3 With the coming of the kingdom,
We shall see our blessèd Lord,
For the King before the kingdom must appear;
Hallelujah to His name,
Who redeemed us by His blood!
For the coming of the kingdom draweth near! [Refrain]

4 Oh, the world is growing weary,
It has waited now so long,
And the hearts of men are failing them for fear;
Let us tell them of the kingdom,
Let us cheer them with the song,
That the coming of the kingdom draweth near! [Refrain]
