1 We wait the peaceful kingdom,
when wolf and lamb shall lie
in gentleness and friendship
without a fear or sigh,
when lion shall be grazing,
when snake shall never strike;
a little child shall lead us
both strong and weak alike.

2 Where is the peaceful kingdom?
When will this new day start?
We long for peace and comfort
to reign within each heart.
Yet not in our lives only,
nor simply in our home:
we pray that all creation
will one day find shalom.

3 When wars of desolation
and hate come to an end,
when nation meets with nation
and calls the other ""friend, ""
still peace in all its fullness
will only have begun:
shalom for all creation
begins with justice done.

4 That little child shall lead us
to walk the chosen way,
to share the peaceful kingdom,
to greet God's newborn day.
The child born in a stable
is sent to break our chains,
to bring through word and table
the day when justice reigns.
