Representative Text

1 “Thy kingdom come” is the prayer we are taught to pray,
Pleading that Jesus all nations of men shall sway;
Thy kingdom come, do Thou hasten the glorious day!
Thy kingdom come, O Lord, Thy kingdom come!

Refrain:
Thy kingdom come, ‘midst the northern snows,
Thy kingdom come, where the palm-tree grows;
Far as the sun flings its glorious ray,
Where men are groping to find the Way;
Speed Thou Thy messengers near and far,
Led by the light of the Morning star;
That all the nations may know Thee and love Thee,
Thy kingdom come!

2 “Thy will be done”—our allegiance by this we prove;
Loving Thy will, tow’rd the day of Thy pow’r we move;
Yearning to share in Thy kingdom of light and love;
Thy kingdom come, O Lord, Thy kingdom come! [Refrain]

3 Hasten the day of a world-wide and Christian peace;
Stretch forth Thy hand that the wars of the world may cease;
Reign Thou in love that all captives may find release;
Thy kingdom come, O Lord, Thy kingdom come! [Refrain]

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. Editor of Christian Workers Magazine, he also served the Moody Bible Institute and was an editor for Hope Publishing Company until his retirement in 1948.
