    "The Kingdom" Lyrics

    Caedmon's Call

    I was a pilgrim in early life
    I traveled at night
    Bound for Jordan just ten miles north
    Of a civil war

    Immersed in mercy in holy flood
    That mingled with blood
    My sextant headed for homebound lands
    Through twilight sands

    But I grew weary and too far-gone
    To carry on

    At first my home and my empire soon
    Would there assume

    I'm watching my kingdom tumbling down
    You're flooding my refuge underground
    My kingdom for angels, mighty surround
    To take me away from here

    A sea of sand came through fiery pass
    A sea of glass
    An ivory fortress and turret's stell
    Would swift reveal

    The gods of beast and of sun and sky
    With banners high
    Were worshipped in their six temple's fold
    Of desert gold

    In summer's sting, as the sages say
    The sand gave way
    My empire capsized at vanity's cost
    And all were lost

    I'm watching my kingdom crumble and fall
    You're building Your kingdom over all
    I'm cursing my wisdom while the angels I call
    To take me away, to take me away from here
