Beholding His Kingdom

We see His kingdom drawing near,
We’ve heard the message loud and clear;
The crown of thorns, His agony,
Was that which purchased this for me.

He who bore our sin and shame,
To magnify His Father’s name,
Has now redeemed us from our sin,
To death’s grim task to make an end.

We see the signs; we know it’s near,
The promise that we hold so dear.
When we shall stand before the throne,
And hear Him say “You are my own.”
