Thy Kingdom Come--By Marcus Omer--United States

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.....

Marcus Omer got serious about writing after he retired in 1997. He draws his inspiration from the many emotions we experience in life. He has published Of Sunshine and Clouds with iUniverse and The Winding Road with Shadow Poetry. He’s also published in Snippets, The Magic of Words and several issues of Golden Words.


  1. What a wonderful day that will be. No fear no suffering no pain or death. very well written full of truth. A great write and a fav for me. well done. best wishes. Pete. The day is coming.

  2. Ah, and so much evil perpetrated in the name of God, such blasphemy, indeed. The devil is having his way with us and it is not a pretty sight. The many still suffer for the few and so how did Jesus feel when He was being persecuted and tortured? Pure hatred spreads like wildfire........... Sheri
