The Eternal Kingdom
by A.J. Higgins

7.6.7.6.7.7.6.6.

O, sing the mighty kingdom!
Advance it now today!
His truth, ere mortal wisdom,
Had seen the light of day,
Has beckoned every nation,
To glorious salvation;
He is the Lord of lords,
And Word above all words.

What kingdom never ceases?
Our God’s own kingdom true!
And still today increases
For Heaven’s harvest view:
His rule is never ending;
And all His saints defending
From Satan’s furious rage
Against the kingdom age.

No temple can be worthy,
Except the heart of man!
Not made of stones, nor earthly
Designs of human plan.
His church is ever glorious,
Against the world, victorious!
For Christ the crucified,
On us, His blood applied.

His sacrifice is greater,
His very blood was spilled;
None other could be better,
For Christ has canceled guilt!
His reign is here forever,
His kingdom ceases never;
All faithful, join and sing
Of Jesus Christ, the King!

My hymn was slightly inspiried by the 7th verse of "Prepare the Way, O Zion." Consequentially,  it is the same meter and sung to BEREDEN VÄG FÖR HERRAN :
