"Thy kingdom come"

"Thy kingdom come"—to lowly sons of men?In deep humility we ponder whenWe'll see the blessed advent—in what place.We need not wait—we now receive Thy grace.Father, may those whose human hearts are blestWith some small knowledge of this great behest,Be most alert to see a brother's need,His hope renew by loving word or deed.

Where to begin? I need not wander far;Here lies the waiting task at my own door:To speak more kindly to a little child,To lift the thought of one with sin defiled,To comfort one whose tears have drenched his face—Of tears, the Scripture saith, there'll be no trace—To speak the truth that heals, to one in pain,Thy presence see in lieu of scorn, disdain.
