King of glory fill the earth

Fill the place in the rubble where the man pulls out his infant son
Lighten the darkened room where the widow heaves with the loss of her husband
Run down the street with the sister who heard an explosion moments ago
Sit with the Marine in the humvee
Follow the refugees to the camp in Sudan
Pour yourself, your very self into the crowds in Haiti
Walk the streets of Manhattan with the family members haunted by loss

King of glory fill the earth

March into the palace
Fly into the chambers
Join the conference table
Envelope the kings and queens, the prime ministers, the presidents, the Pope, the muftis

King of glory fill the earth--cover all the nations; touch all the people

That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness
