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 heav'nly 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.
