249 The People of the Heavenly Kingdom
Verse 1 The Lord's words say, "Repent, heaven's kingdom is near." God's here in the last days, His kingdom among us. Heaven's kingdom, Christ's kingdom, has appeared on earth. Verse 2 The wise virgins heed God's voice and come before His throne. We read God's words, accept truth, attend the Lamb's feast. Judgment, revelation of His words show my nature. Deceitful and inhuman, I'm unfit to live before Him. Verse 3 Undergoing Christ's judgment cleanses my corruption. I bare my heart to God and there are no barriers. I love God, do my duty well, accept His searching. My faith is to gain the truth, live a human likeness. Chorus The honest people who truly love God, they're the people of the heavenly kingdom. Christ's kingdom is heaven and honest man's home. I will love God now and forever! I will love God forever! Verse 4 Scheming to gain one's own blessings is vile and shameless. One who's upright and fair, honorable at heart, is honest. They'll give all, use themselves for God to repay His love. Honest people live the truth and have true repentance. Bridge They live to do God's will, no complaints and no regrets. They learn to fear God, shun evil and live before Him. Through their persecution and their trials, they still bear strong witness to glorify God. Chorus The honest people who truly love God, they're the people of the heavenly kingdom. Christ's kingdom is heaven and honest man's home. I will love God now and forever! I will love God forever!
