God's Kingdom on the earth is now

His sovereign government within;

'Tis Christ Himself in us to live

As Lord and King to rule and reign.


His life with His authority

Enthrones Him now within our hearts

To govern all our words and deeds

And regulate our inward parts.


The Lord enthroned within our hearts

His Kingdom doth establish there,

Assuring His full right to reign

And for God's purpose to prepare.


'Tis by His reign within our hearts

That life to us He e'er supplies;

When taking Him as Lord and King,

His wealth our being satisfies.


'Tis by His ruling from within

His fulness vast is testified;

'Tis when His inner kingdom rules

His Body's blessed and edified.


'Tis by His heav'nly rule within

As heav'nly citizens we live;

'Tis by submission to His rule

Expression of His reign we give.


Here in this heav'nly realm we live,

And with this heav'nly pow'r possessed

We walk and fight in heav'nly light

Until the Kingdom's manifest.
