Thy Kingdom Come
Hasten that day when I no longer sigh,
about a world gone terribly awry.
Bring forth that day when there's true peace within;
when man no more wonders what might have been.
All will be cleansed from dishonor and stains,
for evil is bound in darkness and chains.
From country to country is found no hate,
each city then stands with an open gate.
The vanities of man erased from the soul,
for egos and lust no longer control.
Each home will contain a husband and wife;
the child not witness to fighting and strife.
Joy replaces sorrow; no one will cry,
for only then, will I no longer sigh.....
