Mighty Lord Extend Your Kingdom

by on February 12, 2011

Gregory Wilbur says “One of my favorite missions hymns is ‘How Sweet and Awesome’ mostly because it marries good theology and evangelistic fervor so beautifully. This text by Joseph Cottle does the same thing. God’s sovereignty and Lordship is strongly proclaimed while entreating the spread of the Gospel for His glory’s sake. It seemed most appropriate to set these lyrics to a strong and majestic melody. Having this song sung by men’s chorus is a great reminder of the necessity of vigorous music in the life of the Church.”

You can buy the song or album at iTunes and Amazon.

Mighty Lord, extend Your kingdom, Be the truth with triumph crowned;
Let the lands that sit in darkness Hear the glorious Gospel sound,
From our borders, From our borders, To the world’s remotest bound.

By Your arm, eternal Father, Scatter far the shades of night;
Let the great Immanuel’s kingdom Open like the morning light;
Let all barriers, Let all barriers, Yield before Your heavenly might.

Come in all Your Spirit’s power; Come, Your reign on earth restore;
In Your strength ride forth and conquer, Still advancing more and more,
Till all people, Till all people, Shall Your holy Name adore.
