Blessings of the Future Kingdom

Having missed most of church today, it was time to do a study on my own. Based in part on Mark 1:15:

Blessings of the Future Kingdom
by Michael Romani

Living in a world that is broken
Standing on the promises
The Lord has powerfully spoken
Living life on the premises 

Oh, Father are we there yet
Crying eyes in the wilderness
Want to know if we're near yet
Looking for a bit of the blissfulness

With the faith of a mustard seed
We look toward that tomorrow
When the Lord will answer every need
Replacing joy for our lives of sorrow

In a Digory tree growing in the by and by
We look perhaps foolish in our ways
Stopping to pause as the world passes by
We look toward our sacred end of days

The keys of the kingdom can be found
By the believing hearts of us all
Human sin prevails and seems to abound
Until we respond to our Father's call

Despite those things that seem reality
We need to keep one eye toward the kingdom
His true glory is our very own immortality
Though the beatitudes are held to so seldom

I know that the days will come
When with tears wiped from our eyes
We will greet our Father's kingdom
In a world anew under a sweet sunrise
