In spirit, in the church we see

The high estate we're destined for.

It's higher, vaster, more profound

Than anything we've seen before.


It's not a view in doctrine bare

But an unveiling of the Christ.

He's marvelous and far beyond

Our mental thought or power to share.


He's rich, unlimited, profound,

Immeasurable, and marvelous.

Yet 'tis a greater wonder still

He needs heirs of salvation — us.


God has accomplished many things —

He's planned, created, and brought forth.

The Son is now appointed Heir,

Administrator of God's worth.


But in th' economy of God

There is not one, but many sons.

One is the firstborn Son of God

With many other living ones.


Christ will inherit all God's things,

And we're the heirs of God with Christ.

We're growing now to be matured;

As heirs we'll soon be legalized.


We're joint-heirs with the firstborn Son,

Inheriting the universe.

We're in this corporation vast —

All partners of Christ and the church.


In spirit, in the church, we see

Our calling of unrivaled worth.

We're destined, not to go to heaven.

We're destined to be kings on earth.


We're paupers, yet we're glorious kings.

Inheriting the kingdom vast,

The earth, God's throne, and e'en all things

And all the Father is and has.
