Build Your Kingdom Here

There’s a song that seems to be popping up everywhere. And it has been my favorite song from the first time I heard it this summer at dance camp. “Build Your Kingdom Here” by Rend Collective Experiment puts into words and music the greatest prayer in my heart. On Saturday, during our time of intercession, a team member’s father spoke the song’s lyrics over us, and I was reminded of the power behind this song. Crazy how music can speak such truth into our lives! 

A few weeks ago, I looked up the band behind this great song. The Rend Collective Experiment is a group of friends that began this band or “experiment” in Ireland. I had been originally singing the song with America in mind, but it was so cool to realize that the band was actually singing it with Ireland in mind. Christians from all over the world have the same prayer in their hearts. Sometimes we forget that the church extends past our own little bubble. This song is just proof that God’s vision transcends nationality or language! You can read more about the band’s mission here

I wanted to copy this lyrics here in this post. I hope that they may be an encouragement to you today. Also check their super creative video out on YouTube.

Come set Your rule and reign
in our hearts again.
Increase in us we pray.
Unveil why we’re made.
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
like wildfire in our very souls.
Holy Spirit, come invade us now.
We are Your church.
We need Your power in us.

We seek Your kingdom first.
We hunger and we thirst.
Refuse to waste our lives
for You’re our joy and prize.
To see the captive hearts released.
The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace.
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause.

We are Your church.
We pray revive this earth.

Build Your kingdom here.
Let the darkness fear.
Show Your mighty hand.
Heal our streets and land.
Set Your church on fire.
Win this nation back.
Change the atmosphere.
Build Your kingdom here.
We pray.

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
reaching the near and far.
No force of Hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts.
You made us for much more than this!
Awake the kingdom seed in us!
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ.

We are Your church.
We are the hope on earth.

May we never stop dreaming big and praying hard!
– – Phebe
