The Kingdom of God
Live below your means.
Give to others’ dreams.
Expend yourself each day.
Invest in others all the way.
Serve without seeking thanks.
Thank those who help you by being frank.
Know the joy of being bold.
Become humble without being told.
And you will find yourself always blessed.
Having more than enough and never stressed.
For loving God and then each other.
Brings life to the full and Christ as a brother.
And you will have all that you need.
For the Kingdom of God grows from a very small seed.
But it can live in you today.
For he who is in you is greater than this world’s ways.
The Kingdom of Heaven has come near is what we proclaim.
And we live fully for the glory of his name.
For now we live as strangers in this world,
But one day his colors will be unfurled.
And the kingdom of the world will become the Kingdom of God.
And his Messiah will rule forever and ever as his saints applaud.
And whatever we gave up will be returned a hundred fold,
The trials of this world surely fade on the streets of gold.
