based on the prophecy of Obadiah
Behold, the kingdom is the Lord's!
What vision gave the prophet words
to make his glories known!
Our days are measured by his hand:
within his presence who can stand,
or come before his throne?
Proclaim, the kingdom is the Lord's!
Let nations tremble at his words
and bow to his decree:
who gives to all beneath the sun
the solemn charge: As thou hast done,
it shall be done to thee.
Beware! the kingdom is the Lord's
and fraught with judgment are his words
on all the sons of pride.
Nor deepest cave, nor eagle's flight,
can shield the sinner from his sight:
before him none can hide.
Rejoice, the kingdom is the Lord's!
Depend on his unchanging words
that all who will may come;
and by his covenant of grace
shall find at last their dwelling place
in his eternal home.
