Not far from the Kingdom

Verse 1:
Not far, not far from the Kingdom,
Yet in the shadow of sin;
How many are coming and going!–
How few there are entering in!

Refrain:
How few there are entering in!
How few there are entering in!
How many are coming and going!–
How few there are entering in!

Verse 2:
Not far, not far from the Kingdom,
Where voices whisper and wait;
Too timid to enter in boldly,
So linger still outside the gate.

Verse 3:
Away in the dark and the danger,
Far out in the night and the cold;
There Jesus is waiting to lead you
So tenderly into His fold.

Verse 4:
Not far, not far from the Kingdom,
‘Tis only a little space;
But oh, you may still be forever
Shut out from yon heavenly place!

Words arr./Ira D. Sankey
