The Hymn of God’s Word “The Kingdom Anthem (III) All the People, Shout for Joy”

  • The Hymn of God's Word "The Kingdom Anthem (III) All the People, Shout for Joy"

    1. In the light of God, people all see the light again. In the words of God, people all get good things to enjoy. God comes from the East, and from the East He comes forth. When God’s glorious light shines forth, all nations are lit up. All are brightly lit, and none remains in the dark. In the kingdom, the people and God live in boundless joy. The waters dance merrily for the people’s blissful happy lives, and the mountains enjoy God’s bounty with the people. All men are striving, toiling mightily, faithfully in God’s kingdom they serve. In the kingdom, there is no more disobedience or resistance. Heaven and earth mutually depend; man and God, in loving harmony, live a life so honey-sweet, clinging together close…. At this moment, God has formally begun the life that is lived in heaven. There is no more disturbance from Satan, all the people have entered into rest.

    2. In the entire universe, God’s chosen people live in His glorious light, happy beyond measure. This is not the life of man with man, but the life of the people together with God. All men have been through Satan’s corruptions and have tasted all the joys and sorrows of the world. Today, living in God’s light, how can they not rejoice? How can they let go this wonderful moment, let it flow away? Oh, all the people! Make haste, sing the song in your heart, and dance with joy for God! Make haste, lift up your sincere heart and offer it to God! Make haste and beat the drum, make joyful music for God! High above the universe, God radiates His Delight!Among all the people, God shows His glorious face! God shouts aloud! God transcends the universe! God has become King among all the people! God is exalted among all the people!

    3. God is roaming the blue skies above, His people go with Him; God walks in their midst, His people crowd Him around! All the people are very delighted in their hearts. Their loud singing shakes the entire universe and rends the clouds! In the entire universe, there are no more darkening fogs, neither is there sludge nor turbid streams. O the holy people in the universe! Under God’s review, you have revealed your faces of old. You are not mankind covered in filth, but holy ones as pure and white as jade, beloved of God, God’s delight! All creation revives, all of the holy ones are in heaven again serving God, swathed in God’s warm embrace, weeping no more, troubled no more, giving themselves to God, going home to God, going home to God, loving God in their homeland without surcease! Never changing! Never more to change! Pain is no more! Tears no more! Flesh no more! Earth ceases to be, but heaven endures. God appears to all people, and all people praise God. Such a life, such a beautiful scene, will never change from eternity to eternity. This is the life in the kingdom. This is the life in the kingdom. This is the life in the kingdom.
