God's Kingdom
words and music by: Paul A. Springer

1. I want to be in a kingdom,
That will never pass away.
I want to be in a kingdom,
T'was foretold in ancient days.
I want to be in a kingdom,
Which is called the church today,
I want to be in God's heavenly kingdom,
Where I will forever stay.

2. Jesus is king of the kingdom,
That will never pass away.
Jesus is king of the kingdom,
God's own son who showed the way,
Jesus is king of the kingdom,
I'll follow him and never stray,
I want to be in God's heavenly kingdom,
Where I will forever stay.

3. I am thankful for the kingdom,
That will never pass away.
I am thankful for the kingdom,
Jesus taught it's the right way,
I am thankful for the kingdom,
Praising God I'll always say,
I want to be in God's heavenly kingdom,
Where I will forever stay.

4. I am an heir of the kingdom,
That will never pass away.
I am an heir of the kingdom,
Christ's great cost I can't repay,
I am an heir of the kingdom,
Ready for the judgement day.
I want to be in God's heavenly kingdom,
Where I will forever stay.

[finale] I want to be in God's heavenly kingdom -- --,
Where I will forever stay.
