Thy kingdom come

I've always thought the Lord's Prayer is quite poetic. Maybe it's because we learn it in the King James Version,which is very poetic, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven..."

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Where everyone knows how it feels
To forgive and be forgiven.
To let it go, not hold a grudge,
And remember that You, Lord, are judge.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Where we can share whatever we have,
'cause what we have was given.
And when You send our daily bread,
We'll make sure our neighbour's fed.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Help us once again discover
The freedom of simple living,
That we won't keep chasing after 'stuff',
But know enough really is enough.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Where everyone comes fully alive,
Life turned up to eleven.
Life so full, it's bursting at the seams,
Walking with You, living the dream.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Where we won't need a place of worship,
'cause we'll see You, 24/7.
Sickness,sadness,suffering - no more.
You'll live with us in Eden: restored.
